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: Understanding the Language Classroom
Edited By: Simon Gieve
Inés K Miller
Description:

The starting point for this collection is a chapter by Dick Allwright on
the language learning and teaching classroom experience entitled 'Six
Promising Directions in Applied Linguistics'. The other distinguished
contributors respond to this discussion with their own interpretations and
from their own experience. The collection problematizes prescription,
efficiency, and technical solutions as orientations to classroom language
learning. Complexity and idiosyncrasy, on the other hand, are recognized as
central concepts in a move towards centralizing teachers' and learners' own
understanding of 'classroom life', in the contexts of language learning,
adult literacy education and language teacher education.
