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: Discourse and Politeness
Subtitle: Ambivalent Face in Japanese
Written By: Naomi Geyser
URL: www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

'Discourse and Politeness' examines Japanese institutional discourse and
attempts to clarify the relationship between politeness, facework and
speaker identity. The book seeks to establish an empirically grounded
analysis of facework as the basis for evaluating politeness, and describes
facework in delicate situations such as disagreement, teasing and talking
about troubles, which have rarely been discussed in politeness studies.

Insightful and cutting-edge, this research monograph will be of interest to
researchers in discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and Japanese language.
