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."

Title: Doubling in relative clauses
Subtitle: Aspects of morphosyntactic microvariation in Dutch
Written By: Eefje Boef
URL: http://www.lotpublications.nl/index3.html
Series Title: LOT dissertation Series
Description:

This thesis presents a study of microvariation in (long-distance) restrictive relative clauses and related constructions in Dutch. It shows that a proper understanding of the attested microvariation, and in particular pronoun doubling in long-distance relative clauses and (embedded) wh-questions, yields new insights into the structure of A-bar chains, the syntax of relative clauses, the structure of the left periphery and the nature of (relative) pronouns and their relation with complementizers. More specifically, this thesis provides a unified analysis of doubling in relative clauses and (embedded) wh-questions, a reevaluation and reinstatement of (a revised version of) the traditional head external analysis of relative clauses, and a new implementation of an underspecification approach to so-called multipurpose pronouns and complementizers. This study is of relevance to scholars working on morphosyntactic microvariation, doubling phenomena, the structure of long-distance A-bar chains, the syntax of relative clauses and the nature of relative pronouns and complementizers, as well as to a general syntactic readership
