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: Spanish in Contact: Issues in Bilingualism
Edited By: Ana Roca
John B. Jensen
URL: http://www.cascadilla.com/sic.html
Description:

This collection of papers examines the issues which arise when Spanish (or any language) comes into contact with other languages. How do the languages change and affect each other? How do societal, cultural, and individual attitudes affect language use and development? The authors look at contact situations in Spain, Latin America, and the United States. Issues in code-switching and language planning are also discussed.
