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."


Book Information

   

Title: Geschichte - Kunst - Nation
Subtitle: Die sprachliche Konstituierung einer 'deutschen' Kunstgeschichte aus diskursanalytischer Sicht
Written By: Marcus Müller
Description:

[History - Art - Nation. Discursive Construction of 'German' History of Arts]

Working from a discourse analysis perspective, Müller examines how a
national art history was constituted through its linguistic construction
and transmission. The study demonstrates how German art history was
'manufactured' through language, particularly in the 19th and 20th
centuries. The study operates at the interface between text linguistics,
the history of concepts and the history of words and makes an important
contribution to the history of national consciousness.
