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: Contrastive Rhetoric
Subtitle: Reaching to intercultural rhetoric
Edited By: Ulla Connor

William Rozycki

Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 169
Description:

This volume explores contrastive rhetoric for audiences in both ESL
contexts and international EFL contexts, exposing the newest developments
in theories of culture and discourse and pushing the boundaries beyond any
previously staked ground. The book presents a comprehensive set of
empirical investigations involving a number of first languages; 13 of the
17 authors are English-as-a-second-language speakers, many working in
non-US contexts. This work develops a coherent agenda for contrastive
rhetoric researchers, studying genres such as school writing, grant
proposals, business letters, newspaper editorials, book reviews, and
newspaper commentaries. Four chapters provide ethnographies and
observations about contrastive rhetoric and the teaching of EFL and ESL.
The book ends with a look to the future, suggesting it is more accurate to
use the term intercultural rhetoric to account for the richness of rhetoric
variation of written texts and the varying contexts in which they are
constructed.
