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: Ecolinguistics Reader
Subtitle: Language, Ecology and Environment
Written By: Alwin Fill
Peter Mühlhäusler
Description:

Thirty years ago, a new linguistic paradigm was created when Einar Haugen,
for the first time, combined language with ecology. For Haugen, 'the
ecology of language' meant the study of the interrelations between
languages in the human mind and in the multilingual community. Since then,
a special branch of linguistics, named ecolinguistics, has developed in
which the connection between language and ecology has been established in a
variety of ways and by using a multitude of methods and approaches. This
reader contains important articles from all the different fields of
ecolinguistics - a volume long overdue for a discipline now recognized as a
significant contribution to variety within the subject.
