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, Culture and Identity in Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Richard Kiely
Gerald Clibbon
Pauline Rea-Dickins
Helen Woodfield
Series Title: British Studies in Applied Linguistics, vol 21
Description:

Language, Culture and Identity in Applied Linguistics is a collection of
papers from the BAAL Annual Conference at the University of Bristol 2005.
The thirteen papers, by researchers from Britain and across Europe,
represent a range of research orientations within Applied Linguistics which
connect in different ways with issues in culture and identity. Two plenary
addresses from the conference, by Roz Ivanič and Srikant Sarangi, explore
the themes of identity and culture in contexts of learning and of work.
Papers addressing language planning and policy issues present recent
analyses of francophone identity in Canada and Sami identity in Finland.
The issues of culture and identity in writing are explored in different
papers from the perspective of identity construction in academic writing,
discipline cultures in higher education contexts, the consequences of these
for interdisciplinary writers, and how writers construct audience identity
though the linguistic choices they make. Empirical studies of language
learning and teaching are also represented, with papers on Processing
Instruction and Intercultural Pragmatics. The themes of identity and
culture in these papers connect a range of sub-disciplines within Applied
Linguistics, and also connect knowledge building in Applied Linguistics
with pervasive themes in research across the social sciences, into the ways
people as individuals and in communities understand, shape and represent
their experiences of learning and work.
