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: Applied Linguistics and Language Teacher Education
Edited By: Nat Bartels
Series Title: Educational Linguistics 4
Description:

Applied Linguistics and Language Teacher Education is aimed at applied
linguists who are interested in understanding more about the learning of
novice teachers in their classes. The 21 studies in this volume provide
information on the complexity of novice teachers learning and use of
knowledge in a variety of applied linguistics classes such as SLA, Syntax,
Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, Phonetics and Phonology, L2 Reading and
Writing, Testing, and Content Based Instruction. These studies were
conducted in a variety of contexts, from North and South America to Europe,
Asia and Australia, and look at the preparation of teachers of English,
Spanish and Chinese.

The book also includes a state-of-the-art summary of research on knowledge
acquisition and use which provides applied linguists with a solid basis for
developing their ideas about their students learning and use of the
knowledge presented in their classes.
