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."

presentation of Caucasian Albanian, a full grammar of the language of the
texts (including remarks on minor inscriptions, language history etc.), an
editio minor of the texts (Gospel of John, Lectionary) for quick reference,
indices and concordances (Caucasian Albanian/Old Armenian/Old
Georgian/Russian/English/Udi), and (in the second volume) the editio
princeps with photographs of the single parchment sheets, facsimiles,
transliteration, and parallel texts in Armenian; Georgian, Russian, Syriac,
English, and Udi.

The two volumes are going to be published at Brépols (Turnhout, Belgium),
see http://www.brepols.net/catalogue/index.jsp?mpk=20295&art=875817. The
publisher expects a relevant number of orders before starting to print the
volumes (that shall appear this year in spring). In case libraries or
individuals are interested in ordering the two volumes they are kindly
