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: The Multilingual Internet
Subtitle: Language, Culture, and Communication Online
Edited By: Brenda Danet
Susan C. Herring
Description:

Two-thirds of global internet users are non-English speakers. Despite this,
most scholarly literature on the internet and
computer-mediated-communication (CMC) focuses exclusively on English. This
is the first book devoted to analyzing internet related CMC in languages
other than English. The volume collects 18 new articles on facets of
language and internet use, all of which revolve around several central
topics: writing systems, the structures and features of local languages and
how they affect internet use, code switching between multiple languages,
and gender issues, public policy issues, and so on. The scope of languages
discussed in the volume is unusually broad, including English, French,
Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Spanish, Japanese, Thai, and Portugese. This book
will be of great interest to anyone studying linguistics, applied
linguistics, communication, anthropology, and information sciences.
