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."

Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities
Description:

Maintaining Minority Languages in Transnational Contexts offers insights
into the complexities of language planning and policy, and highlights
Australian and European - and EU - approaches to the management of
multilingualism. These approaches include dealing with indigenous and
migrant ethnolinguistic minorities, critical examination of educational policies
for the provision of community languages in mainstream schooling,
educational initiatives for the linguistic integration of minority language
speakers and community efforts to maintain and/or revitalise minority
languages. The chapters offer insights into country-specific policies in
Australia, Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland,
Spain and Sweden, and engage in comparative discussions, either between
countries within Europe or between Australia and Europe.
