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: A Paradigm Lost. The Linguistic Theory of Mikolay Kruszewski
Written By: Williams Joanna
Description:

Argues that Kruszewski's major work Ocerk nauki o jazyke ('An Outline of the Science of Language) had the potential to be seminal to the field, but because of historical factors, including his early death and the simultaneous consolidation of the Neo-grammarian paradigm, this did not happen.
