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."

Description:

This volume brings together a collection of empirical studies on
phonological acquisition and disorder of monolingual children speaking
different languages (English, German, Putonghua, Cantonese, Maltese,
Telugu, Colloquial Egyptian Arabic and Turkish) and bilingual children
speaking different language pairs (Spanish-English, Cantonese-English,
Mirpuri/Punjabi/Urdu-English, Welsh-English, Arabic-English and
Putonghua-Cantonese). The research findings provide much-needed baseline
information for clinical assessment and diagnosis as well as valuable
evidence concerning theories of language acquisition and the role of the
ambient language.
