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."

This book is the first to propose an integrated approach to the study of
bilingual education in minority and majority settings. Contributions from
well-known scholars working in eight different countries in Europe and the

towards the construction of multilingual spaces.
