  • Language monitoring in bilinguals as a mechanism for rapid lexical
           divergence
    • Abstract: The default assumption in linguistics is that language contact leads to convergent change. However, as recent works highlight—for example, Muysken 2013, Braunmüller et al. 2014, and Evans’s recent plenary address at the International Conference for Historical Linguistics (Evans 2015)—this is not the only possible outcome. Increasingly, empirical studies of contact situations identify stability and even divergence as potential outcomes, and also find that convergent and divergent change occur at the same time (Höder 2014). For example, there are now several well-documented cases of scant lexical borrowing coupled to extensive structural convergence (e.g. Ross 2001, Aikhenvald 2002, Epps 2007), while François ...

  • Symmetrical and asymmetrical voice systems and processing load:
           Pupillometric evidence from sentence production in Tagalog and German
    • Abstract: The grammatical voice systems found in the world’s languages are often categorized into nominative-accusative, ergative-absolutive, and active-inactive systems, among others. Some Austronesian languages have long been known to defy a classification into one of the commonly found systems, which led to the proposal to extend the typology of voice systems by introducing a distinction between ‘asymmetrical’ voice systems, which exhibit a distinction between unmarked and marked voices, and ‘symmetrical’ voice systems, in which all voices are equally marked (Foley 2008, Riesberg 2014b). In this article I first introduce key properties of these two kinds of voice systems and give a brief review of the arguments for the ... Read More

  • Class, gender, and substrate erasure in sociolinguistic change: A
           sociophonetic study of schwa in deracializing South African English
    • Abstract: This article is concerned with the extent to which linguistics (and especially sociolinguistics) can illuminate at a microlevel the large-scale changes that continue to take place in societies outside the Western industrial and postindustrial mainstream. It focuses on the changing sociolinguistic dynamics in post-apartheid South Africa, where there are now robust generational differences in the new society, new social-class considerations, and salient gender differences within the younger generation. These considerations form the core of a larger project on English in a multilingual society, focusing on South Africans of different backgrounds in five cities. This article concentrates on the interplay between L2 ... Read More

  • Emergent positional privilege in novel English blends
    • Abstract: Positional neutralization effects are a class of phonological phenomena in which contrasts are neutralized in ‘weak’ positions such as unstressed syllables or coda consonants, but maintained in ‘strong’ positions such as stressed syllables or onset consonants. These effects are common in the world’s languages, and very similar sets of strong and weak positions recur across languages. However, there is some controversy over the best phonological account of these typological facts—in particular, over whether they arise from the universal availability of constraints specifically enforcing phonological privilege in strong positions. The earliest approaches to positional neutralization in the optimality theory ... Read More

  • Renewal: A figure of speech or a process sui generis'
    • Abstract: This article is concerned with the question of whether the renewal of grammatical categories is a useful and theoretically viable concept in analyzing and explaining morphosyntactic change. As renewal is concerned with the development of grammatical constructions, it covers at least partially the same ground as grammaticalization theory. Hence, the viability of renewal as a process sui generis depends in part on the question of whether it can account for aspects of the development of grammatical constructions not well covered by grammaticalization theory. We argue here that the answer to this question is ‘no’: renewal is not a type of grammatical change, since it lacks theoretical coherence and empirical support. ... Read More

  • /u/-fronting and agent-based modeling: The relationship between the origin
           and spread of sound change
    • Abstract: The study of how historical sound change develops out of synchronic variation has been pursued following, broadly, two separate and to a large extent nonoverlapping objectives over the last forty to fifty years. The first is predominantly concerned with bias factors internal to the language and how they can cause continuous phonetic variation to become unstable, leading to a categorical sound change. Much of the research in this area, inspired by Ohala’s (1981, 2012) research over several decades, has used laboratory studies to understand the conditions that give rise to sound changes across languages of the world, such as umlaut (Beddor et al. 2002), tonogenesis (Hombert et al. 1979, Kirby 2014), and ...

  • Phonological restrictions on lenition in Scottish Gaelic
    • Abstract: In this article, we report on a unified behavioral and corpus investigation of phonological restrictions on lenition in Scottish Gaelic. Lenition is an instance of productive morphologically triggered consonant mutation, a remarkable grammatical process found in a number of languages, but most notably in all of the extant Celtic languages. Basically, mutation refers to the process whereby initial consonants undergo various phonological changes in specific morphosyntactic contexts. Historically, mutation is the residue of sandhi triggered by phonological material that is, in most cases, now gone. While triggered morphosyntactically in the modern language, there are a number of phonological restrictions on the ... Read More

  • Guardians of language: Twenty voices through history by Florian Coulmas
           (review)
    • Abstract: Language planning and policy (LPP) was founded as an academic field in the late 1960s and early 1970s by Joshua Fishman and other prominent scholars. In its early years, LPP was perceived as a subfield of applied linguistics and the sociology of language, one most specifically interested in developing nations and the way they cope with language-related problems. Some particular cases of language planning, such as the planned revitalization of Hebrew in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, drew a great deal of attention. Scholars uncovered more and more historical cases in which new scripts were developed, dialects were standardized or granted official status, and language conflicts between elites or other ...

  • Are some languages better than others' by R. M. W. Dixon (review)
    • Abstract: This treatise unabashedly poses the simple polar question of whether some languages are ‘better’ than others. Dixon, an extraordinarily experienced linguist, is of course wise enough not to answer with a plain ‘yes’ or ‘no’. At the end of the book, he even completely leaves the decision to his readers: ‘It is up to you, the reader, to decide’ (245). Before this final plea, however, close to 250 pages are devoted to preparing the issue in a careful and detailed way. D first states that it is legitimate and necessary to compare the relative worth of languages. Like every other science, he argues, linguistics has the fundamental task of evaluation. It is now time to fulfill this task and embark on a ... Read More

  • A theory of phonological features by San Duanmu (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, San Duanmu proposes a minimal set of distinctive features to account for the segmental contrasts observed in phoneme inventories of about 1,000 languages. This is the first large-scale investigation of this type, and I think phonologists are likely to be surprised by how efficiently these contrasts are accounted for and by which phonological distinctions are not necessary. The book provides a wealth of setting-off points for further work investigating the sound systems of the world’s languages. D has written extensively on prosodic and segmental phonology. Pursuing a minimal set of phonological distinctive features has been a thread through much of his work, culminating in this book. ... Read More

  • Phonological typology by Matthew K. Gordon (review)
    • Abstract: Gordon’s Phonological typology (PT) is a survey of the crosslinguistic variation found in selected phonological phenomena. There is an emphasis throughout on explaining such variation, resulting in a book that is highly theoretically informed. There are also many discussions of within-language frequency of phonological categories—something rarely found in work of this type. Overall, PT is a masterful work, written by a highly qualified author: G has many publications in theoretical phonology and has presented extensive typological research as evidence for his theories. It is important to say what PT is not. It does not propose any new theories, and it is not a textbook. PT is also not a ... Read More

  • Grammaticalization and the rise of configurationality in Indo-Aryan by Uta
           Reinöhl (review)
    • Abstract: Although relatively short, this book tackles central issues in historical syntax and grammaticalization theory, with implications far beyond the Indo-Aryan case study that forms the empirical core of the study. It can be read on two levels: on the one hand, as a historical micro-analysis of two postpositions and their source lexemes across three millennia of Indo-Aryan (I-A), and on the other, as a set of theoretical claims regarding the mechanisms by which the claimed ‘strong non-configurationality’ of Vedic ultimately spawned the ‘low-level configurationality’ of the modern I-A languages. Uta Reinöhl draws on a text corpus spanning several chronological stages of I-A: Vedic Sanskrit, early ... Read More

  • Cyclical change continued ed. by Elly van Gelderen (review)
    • Abstract: A central objective of diachronic linguistics consists in identifying basic regularities of language change, in order to contribute to a deeper understanding of language and human cognition. One particularly systematic type of change that lends itself to this kind of investigation is linguistic cycles, that is, instances of recurrent directional, stepwise change and renewal of linguistic markers, found repeatedly within one language but also across languages. The concept of linguistic cycles (or spirals), already explicit in von der Gabelentz 1901 and Meillet 1912, has proven very fruitful in recent years, with the renewed interest in the history of negation and jespersen’s cycle (Willis et al. ...

  • New insights into the syntax and semantics of complementation:
           Introduction to the special issue
    • Abstract: Dependent clauses are one of the prominent examples illustrating the ability to generate recursive structures by a computational mechanism. Three types of dependent clauses have usually been distinguished in a broader sense: (i) complement clauses, (ii) adverbial clauses, and (iii) correlative or relative clauses. The question of whether these three types can be reduced to a single abstract structure has inspired several fruitful lines of research, resulting in a mass of new empirical findings and leading to novel results. For example, many authors have proposed to analyze different types of dependent clauses as correlative/relative clauses (see Arsenijević 2009, Bhatt & Pancheva 2006, Caponigro & Polinsky ...

  • The development of the declarative complementizer in German
    • Abstract: Like their English counterparts, German declarative argument clauses are introduced by a complementizer that is homophonous with the third-person singular neuter form of the demonstrative pronoun.1 (1)    It is a widely held assumption that the German complementizer dass evolved from the nominative/accusative form of the neuter demonstrative pronoun. The standard scenario, which was already proposed by the Neogrammarians (e.g. Behaghel 1877, 1928:130, Paul 1920:241), not only has been taken up by many descriptively oriented studies (e.g. Müller & Frings 1959, Horacek 1964, Wunder 1965:255–56, Fleischmann 1973, Ebert 1978:26, Dorchenas 2005), but also found its way into early generative ...

  • From a focus particle to a conjunction: Diachronic and synchronic analysis
           of German zumal
    • Abstract: This article addresses the German causal conjunction zumal ‘the more so as, especially since’, as in 1. (1)    Unlike other German causal conjunctions, zumal has not had much attention in the literature. There has in fact been no systematic description of this conjunction so far. Syntactically, clauses introduced by zumal belong at first sight to the class of noncanonical clauses that are not integrated into the matrix clause. But the tests for the internal and external syntactic behavior of zumal in §2 below suggest that this conjunction has exceptional features and requires special treatment. Since—as I show below—these clauses exhibit some syntactic behaviors not yet observed for this group ... Read More

  • The C system of relatives and complement clauses in the history of Slavic
           languages
    • Abstract: Diachronic transitions between different elements that occupy the (traditionally so-called) Comp position at the left clausal periphery are well known from the history of Germanic and Romance languages (cf. van Gelderen 2004, Axel 2009, and references therein). In particular, pathways between the specifier and the head of Comp (SpecC and C0), two potential surface positions of relative clause markers, have been captured descriptively by the spec-to-head principle or head preference principle of van Gelderen (2004). The principle holds that realizing C0 is preferable to realizing SpecC. Given that relative pronouns are often descendants of older demonstrative pronouns (Harris & Campbell 1995, Hopper & Traugott ... Read More
