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: Language Planning in Multilingual Contexts: Policies, Communities and Schools in Luxembourg
Written By: Kathryn A Davis
Series Title: Studies in Bilingualism, 8
Description:

This volume examines the sociocultural factors that influence language choices and uses in the multilingual country of Luxembourg. Patterns of language use within and across communities are viewed in terms of interrelationships among language policy intent, implementation and experience. Also studied is the difference between reality and expectation for both individual and government goals. A history of past language policies and practices sets the background for recent policy formation and current language uses and values.
