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: DVD of Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program
Subtitle: From Alif Baa to Al-Kitaab Part Three
Written By: Kristen Brustad
Mahmoud Al-Batal
Abbas Al-Tonsi
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/detail.html?id=9781589015098
Description:

One of the distinguishing features of the Al-Kitaab program is its
introduction of dialects alongside Modern Standard Arabic. In the dialogue
sections of each of the four volumes and on the multimedia, students can
follow the story of Maha and Khalid in the Egyptian dialect. The DVD of
Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program provides comparable
dialect materials now in the Levantine dialect. Filmed entirely in
Damascus, these video dialogues have been "translated" to reflect the
greater Levantine language and culture and follow the parallel story of two
new characters, Nasreen and Tariq. The DVD features Levantine versions of
all the dialogue clips that correspond to each of the program’s four
volumes, from Alif Baa through Al-Kitaab Part Three.
