Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
Sprachliches Wissen zwischen Lexikon und Grammatik [Linguistic Knowledge Between Lexicon and Grammar]
De Gruyter Jahrbuch des Instituts für Deutsche Sprache
This volume presents the current linguistic debate on the relationship between lexicon and grammar and on the status of constructions. It makes reference to investigations of phenomena relating to valence, argument structure, diatheses, collocations and phrasemes. Starting from different positions within linguistic theory, the contributions also reflect the empirical methodologies currently applied to substantiate basic positions in linguistic theory.
