Change as a Distinct Property of Language

Dr. Peter Pryce
Free sample

Peter Pryce is working on the premise that there is “never a moment of true standstill in language” (Keller, 1994:6) as it is by nature in a continuous process of development. Pryce embarks on a descriptive study of language with a view to answering the following questions: Why and how do languages change? He uses the Finnish language to illustrate that: Language innovation leads to language variation. He observes the phenomenon of the influence of foreignisms on Finnish discourses and concludes that it is an instantiation of a general characteristic of language change.
