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: Language Acquisition and Development
Subtitle: Studies of learners of first and other languages
Written By: Brian Tomlinson
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

"This is an exciting contribution to second language studies and is an
invaluable resource. The collection represents an intelligently edited,
probing and innovative set of studies balanced between social and
psychological insights and pointing to many new research possibilities."

-Professor Ronald Carter, University of Nottingham and Chair, British
Association for Applied Linguistics

This book presents new research in the field of language acquisition and
development, and covers a wide-range of languages and contexts. The
contributors pay attention to first language development and other language
acquisition (second, foreign and additional), and focus on issues directly
relevant to both areas of investigation. One of the main aims of the book
is to discover how research and practice in first language development can
contribute to the teaching and learning of other languages, and vice versa.
The book is distinctive in this area in its application of theoretical
findings to the development of principles, objectives and procedures for
language learning. 'Language Acquisition and Development' will be of
interest to postgraduates, academics and language teachers researching
applied linguistics, language acquisition and language development.
