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: Altgeorgisch-Deutsches Wörterbuch
Written By: S. Sardshweladse
Heinz Fähnrich
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24128
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies
Description:

Evidence of old Georgian, the only written language in the South Caucasian
family for many centuries, presents us with a unique source of knowledge
for this region; history, law, religion. This dictionary of old-Georgian by
Professors Fähnrich and Sardshweladse (†) fills a long-felt hiatus and
opens up for the first time the lexicon of its first seven centuries, viz.
the 4th to the 11th centuries A.D. The explanatory language is German. All
old Georgian words and word meanings are accompanied by ample evidence from
the texts themselves, the result of painstaking research over many decades.
A must for specialists in the region, its language and history.
