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: Indo-European Linguistics
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: James Clackson
Description:

The Indo-European language family comprises several hundred languages and
dialects, including all of those spoken in Europe, and most of those spoken
in South, Southwest and Central Asia. Spoken by an estimated three billion
people, it has the largest number of native speakers in the world today.
This textbook provides an accessible introduction to the study of the
Indo-European languages. It clearly sets out the methods for relating the
languages to one another, presents an engaging discussion of the current
debates and controversies concerning their classification, and offers
sample problems and suggestions for how to solve them. Complete with a
comprehensive glossary, almost 100 tables in which language data and
examples are clearly laid out, suggestions for further reading, discussion
points, and a range of exercises, this text will be an essential toolkit
for all those studying historical linguistics, language typology and the
Indo-European languages for the first time.
