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."

'...a major enterprise comparable to a grand retrospective of the painting
of some prominent artist of a distinctive school.'
- Roy Harris, Times Literary Supplement

The tenth volume in Professor M.A.K. Halliday's collected works includes
papers focusing on Language and Society. The papers provide a framework for
understanding the social meaning of language, and the relation of language
to other social phenomena. The volume begins with Professor Halliday's
ground-breaking work on the users and uses of language. Subsequent chapters
are organized around a discussion of sociolinguistic theory, and the
relation between language and social class and social structure.
