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: What Bantu Child Speech Data Tells Us About the Controversial Semantics of Bantu Noun Class System
Written By: Daniel Franck Idiata
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in African Linguistics 67
Description:

The question of semantism of Bantu nominal classes has risen and still
rises heated debates between Africanist linguists, in general, and
Bantuists, in particular. The present book, which comes back on that
exciting subject treats the question of the correlation between affixes of
classes and semantic categorization in a new perspective, that of the
language acquisition in children. It is about comparing historical data
(proto-Bantu reconstructions) and the reality of nominal class systems in
synchrony with acquisitional strategies developed by children in the
acquisition process of these systems by children.
