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: Emotions and Multilingualism
Written By: Aneta Pavlenko
Series Title: Studies in Emotion and Social Interaction
Description:

How do bilinguals experience emotions? Do they perceive and express
emotions similarly or differently in their respective languages? Does the
first language remain forever the language of the heart? What role do
emotions play in second language learning and in language attrition? Why do
some writers prefer to write in their second language? In this provocative
and ground-breaking book, Pavlenko challenges the monolingual bias of
modern linguistics and psychology and uses the lens of bi- and
multilingualism to offer a fresh perspective on the relationship between
language and emotions. Bringing together insights from the fields of
linguistics, neurolinguistics, psychology, anthropology, psychoanalysis,
and literary theory, Pavlenko offers a unique and comprehensive
introduction to this cross-disciplinary movement. This is a highly readable
and thought provoking book that draws on empirical data and first hand
accounts and offers invaluable advice for novice researchers. It will
appeal to scholars and researchers across many discplines.
