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: Using Spanish Synonyms
Written By: R. E. Batchelor
Description:

Written for those with a basic competence in Spanish, this comprehensive
synonyms guide is designed to help the learner find the right word for the
right context - thus improving their vocabulary and enabling them to
communicate more precisely and fluently. It contains around 900 lists of
synonyms, each one classified according to its level of formality. Every
synonym is illustrated with authentic examples, and the subtle shades of
difference between them are clearly explained. The book contains four clear
indexes: Spanish-Spanish, Argentinean-Spanish, Mexican-Spanish and
English-Spanish, enabling the reader to instantly locate any word. This
second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, and includes new
material on Argentinean and Mexican varieties, including a useful
comparison of Mexican and Iberian Spanish. It will continue to be an
essential reference for college and undergraduate students, their teachers,
and other language professionals seeking a clear, user-friendly guide to
Spanish synonyms and their usage.
