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: The Connections Between Language and Reading Disabilities
Subtitle: Current Findings and Future Directions
Edited By: Hugh W. Catts
Alan G. Kamhi
Description:

This is an edited book based on papers presented at a 2003 invitee-only
conference under the sponsorship of the Merrill Advanced Studies Center of
the University of Kansas. The participants were prominent scholars in the
areas of language and reading and have research programs funded by NIH and
other funding sources. The purpose of the gathering was to discuss
theoretical issues and research findings concerning the relationship
between developmental language and reading disabilities, specifically
looking at neurological, behavioral, and genetic factors; other factors
that contribute to reading difficulties in the middle elementary school
years through adolescence; and, literacy outcomes for children with early
language impairments and how these problems relate to children with
dyslexia. The Foreward is written by Reid Lyon, Branch Chief, Child
Development and Behavior Branch, NICHD-National Institutes of Health.

This book will appeal to scholars in the areas of language disorders and
reading disabilities, as well as to practicing speech-language
pathologists, special educators, and reading specialists. It may also be
used in graduate courses designed as seminars in either language disorders
or reading disabilities in schools of communication disorders as well as in
schools of education, especially special education departments.
