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."
Substantivdetermination im Deutschen und im Ungarischen [Substantive Determination in German and Hungarian: A Contrastive Typological Linguistic Analysis]
DE GRUYTER AKADEMIE FORSCHUNG Konvergenz und Divergenz 2
This study examines the issue of substantive determination in German and Hungarian from a perspective that contrasts typologies. Starting from the semantic-pragmatic functions of the determinative, the author describes its use in these two languages as an expression of definiteness, indefiniteness, and genericity.
