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."
Hispanic Linguistics at the Turn of the Millennium: Papers from the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium
The papers in this volume were selected from those presented at the 3rd Hispanic Linguistics Symposium held at Georgetown University in October 1999. We are delighted to be publishing selected proceedings from this annual conference. 10 of the papers in this book discuss phonology, phonetics, and historical linguistics. The other 15 papers focus on syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The volume offers an excellent snapshot of the research currently being done in Hispanic linguistics.
