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: Growing up Bilingual
Subtitle: Puerto Rican Children in New York
Written By: Ana Celia Zentella
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=9781557864079
Description:

This book provides an inside view of the social construction of
bilingualism in one of the largest and most disadvantaged Spanish-speaking
groups in the United States. It walks readers through a New York Puerto
Rican Community and describes the five varieties of Spanish and English
that constitute the community's bilingual and multi-dialectal repertoire,
the four major communication patterns that predominate in the homes of
twenty families with children, and the syntactic features and discourse
strategies of so-called "Spanglish".
