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."


Book Information

   

Title: The Yearbook of South Asian Languages and Linguistics
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/384_7356_ENU_h.htm
Description:

The Yearbook of South Asian Languages and Linguistics brings together empirical and theoretical research and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but which have universal application. In the words of the Editor-in-Chief, "other than excellence and non-isolationism, we have no agenda and no thematic priorities." This pioneering yearbook is of interest to all those in the fields of linguistics, sociolinguistics, language and speech studies, literature and sociology.

Rajendra Singh is Professor of Linguistics at the Université de Montréal,
Canada.
