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: Color Categories in Thought and Language
Edited By: C. L Hardin
Description:

Twenty-five years ago, Berlin and Kay argued that there are commonalities
of basic color term use that extend across languages and cultures, and
probably express universal features of perception and cognition. In this
volume, a distinguished team of contributors from visual science,
psychology, linguistics and anthropology examine how these claims have
fared in the light of current knowledge, surveying key ideas, results and
techniques from the study of human color vision as well as field methods
and theoretical interpretations drawn from linguistic anthropology.
