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 contains 26 papers selected from the 35th Annual Conference on
African Linguistics (ACAL 35), which was held at Harvard University in
2004. The theme of the conference, "African Languages and Linguistics in
Broad Perspective," was an open invitation to go beyond traditional
linguistic theorizing and to discuss issues of greater sociolinguistic and
cultural meaning, outside of Africa as well as on the continent. The
selected papers of this volume represent a broad range of papers selected
for their significance, breadth of coverage, and depth of analysis, written
by scholars from around the globe. The complete table of contents is
available at http://www.lingref.com/cpp/acal/35/index.html along with
abstracts and the actual papers in PDF format.

This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, an
imprint of Cascadilla Press. Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings
Project are published in library binding. There is also free web access to
all of the papers in the proceedings through our web site at lingref.com.
