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: Prague Linguistic Circle Papers Volume 2.
Edited By: Eva Hajičová
Zdena Skoumalova
Oldřich Leška
Peter Sgall
Description:

Volume 2 of Prague Linguistic Circle Papers together with Volume 1 of the series, constitutes a single whole, reviving the classical series of Travaux du Cercle linguistique de Prague which was of great importance in the development of European structural linguistics in the 1930s. In the present volume, nine Czech and eight non-Czech linguists present new ideas in various domains --from basic properties of the system of language to discourse types and to history of linguistics in the 20th century. Also discussed are fundamental issues of structural linguistics, quantitative linguistics, sentence and discourse patterns, phonology, graphemics and the lexicon.
