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: Working with German Corpora
Subtitle: With a foreword by John Sinclair
Edited By: Bill Dodd
Description:

The essays in this volume, written by Germanists from Britain, Ireland, the
USA and Australia, illustrate the enormous potential which corpus-based
work has for German Studies as a whole and the rich diversity of work
currently being undertaken. Many contributions contain new research data,
and topics covered include areas as diverse as literary studies,
translation studies, language learning applications, specialist registers,
descriptive and critical linguistics, spoken language, historical
linguistics and corpus construction. A detailed introduction explains basic
concepts, methods, and applications of corpus-based work.
