Letter Writing and Language Change

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."

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 320
Description:

The International Conference on Historical Linguistics has always been a forum
that reflects the general state of the art in the field, and the 2009 edition, held in
Nijmegen, The Netherlands, fully allows the conclusion that the field has been
thriving over the years. The studies presented in this volume are an expression
of ongoing theoretical discussions as well as new analytical approaches to the
study of issues concerning language change. Taken together, they reflect some
of the current challenges in the field, as well as the opportunities offered by
judicious use of theoretical models and careful corpus-based work. The
volume's contributions are organized under the following headings: I. General
and Specific Issues of Language Change, II. Linguistic Variation and Change in
Germanic, III. Linguistic Variation and Change in Greek, and IV. Linguistic
Change in Romance.
