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."


Book Information

   

Title: Conrad, Language, and Narrative
Written By: Michael Greaney
Description:

In this re-evaluation of the writings of Joseph Conrad, Michael
Greaney places language and narrative at the heart of his literary
achievement. As a trilingual Polish expatriate, Conrad brought a formidable
linguistic self-consciousness to the English novel and tensions between
speech and writing are the defining obsessions of his career. Greaney
examines a wide range of Conrad's work, combining recent critical
approaches to language in post-structuralism with an impressive command of
linguistic theory.
