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: Kamus Basa Aceh-Kamus Bahasa Aceh: Acehnese-Indonesian-English Thesaurus
Written By: Bukhari Daud
Mark Durie
Description:

Spoken by over two million people in the Special Region of Aceh, Acehnese is one of the major regional languages of Indonesia. A community of speakers is also found in Kedah, Malaysia. The Acehnese people have a highly developed literary tradition, and a rich history. This is the only published lexicon which supports translation into Acehnese - previous Acehnese dictionaries have been Acehnese-Dutch or Acehnese-Indonesian. The Thesaurus is a valuable tool for language learners and for others such as health professionals or agricultural consultants working amongst Acehnese people.
