Letter Writing and Language Change

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: Phonetically-Based Phonology
Edited By: Bruce Hayes
Robert Kirchner
Donca Steriade
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521825788
Description:

This collection of essays by a team of leading scholars affords a
wide-ranging study of phonetically-based phonology, investigating the role
of phonetics in a broad range of key phonological phenomena.
Phonetically-based phonology is centered around the hypothesis that
phonologies of languages are determined by phonetic principles; that is,
phonetic patterns involving ease of articulation and perception are
expressed linguistically as grammatical constraints. Diverse and
comprehensive in its coverage, the book will be welcomed by all linguists
interested in the relationship between phonetics and phonological theory.
