Word order change in acquisition and language contact : essays in honour of Ans van Kemenade( )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The case studies in this volume offer new insights into word order change. As is now becoming increasingly clear, word order variation rarely attracts social values in the way that phonological variants do. Instead, speakers tend to attach discourse or information-structural functions to any word order variation they encounter in their input, either in the process of first language acquisition or in situations of language or dialect contact. In second language acquisition, fine-tuning information-structural constraints appears to be the last hurdle that has to be overcome by advanced learners. The papers in this volume focus on word order phenomena in the history of English, as well as in related languages like Norwegian and Dutch-based creoles, and in Romance"--
A historical syntax of English by Bettelou Los( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimed at advanced students, this book discusses a number of approaches to charting the major developments in the syntax of English. It does not assume any knowledge of Old or Middle English or of formal syntax, although students should be familiar with traditional syntactic concepts such as verbs and nouns, subjects and objects, and linguistic concepts such as morphology and case. Bettelou Los draws on explanations from both formal and functional approaches to explore how syntactic changes are the product of the interaction of many internal and external factors. Discusses internal factors such as the loss of morphology and pressure from analogy Covers external factors such as the sociolinguistic impact of language and dialect contact Strikes a balance between theoretical explanation and accessibility to readers with no background in formal syntax

Historical dialectology in the digital age by Rhona Alcorn( )

6 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on the resources created by the Institute of Historical Dialectology at the University of Edinburgh (now the Angus McIntosh Centre for Historical Linguistics), such as eLALME (the electronic version A Linguistic Atlas of Late Medieval English), LAEME (A Linguistic Atlas of Early Middle English) and LAOS (A Linguistic Atlas of Older Scots), this volume illustrates how traditional methods of historical dialectology can benefit from new methods of data-collection to test out theoretical and empirical claims. In showcasing the results that these resources can yield in the digital age, the book highlights novel methods for presenting, mapping and analysing the quantitative data of historical dialects, and sets the research agenda for future work in this field. Bringing together a range of distinguished researchers, the book sets out the key corpus-building strategies for working with regional manuscript data at different levels of linguistic analysis including syntax, morphology, phonetics and phonology. The chapters also show the ways in which the geographical spread of phonological, morphological and lexical features of a language can be used to improve our assessment of the geographical provenance of historical texts."--

32 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
