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."

This volume brings together a selection of revised papers, originally

grammars to new scientific propositions at the turn of the 19th century;
the second part carries articles devoted to a variety of topics in 19th and
20th century linguistics; and in the third section are united papers based
on plenary presentations, ranging from ancient Greek reflections upon
language to developments in Brazilian linguistics beginning with the
implantation of structuralist work by Joaquim Mattoso Câmara (1904–1970) in
the 1960s. In the concluding contribution, a survey of advances in the
history of the language sciences is offered.
