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: Texture
Subtitle: A Cognitive Aesthetics of Reading
Written By: Peter Stockwell
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748625819
Description:

A study of 'texture', a key feature of literary reading

Texture represents the latest advance in cognitive poetics. This book
builds feeling and embodied experience on to the insights into
meaningfulness which the cognitive approach to literature has achieved in
recent years. Taking key familiar concepts such as characterisation, tone,
empathy, and identification, the book describes the natural experience of
literary reading in a thorough and principled way. Accessibly and
informatively written, Texture draws on stylistics, psycholinguistics,
critical theory and neurology to explore the nature of reading verbal art.
The aim is a new cognitive aesthetics of literature for its academic,
student, professional and natural readers.

This book is available in North America from Columbia University Press.
