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: Language and Aging in Multilingual Contexts
Written By: Kees de Bot
Sinfree Makoni
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

In this book different aspects of language and aging are discussed. While
language spoken by and language spoken with elderly people have been
treated as different areas of research, it is argued here that from a
dynamical system perspective the two are closely interrelated. In addition
to overviews of research on language and aging, a number of projects on
this topic in multilingual settings are presented.
