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, by a group of highly talented young scholars, gives us a
glimpse of what multimodal discourse analysis might come to look like in
the first half of the 21st century."
Professor Theo van Leeuwen, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

New Discourse on Language addresses the need for innovative analyses of
multi-modal discourse, identity and affiliation within functional
linguistics. The chapters in this volume are connected by their common
underlying theoretical approach, Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL), and
by their focus on semantic variation (across modalities of communication
and between speakers) as well as the negotiation of identity and affiliation.

The analyses focus on a diverse range of texts from very different
contexts, using analytic techniques that are based on the latest research
in this field. They represent a wealth of exploratory, innovative and
challenging perspectives, and are a key contribution to the extension of
systemic-functional theory to the analysis of multimodality, identity and
affiliation.

The volume is of interest to linguists, applied linguists, semioticians,
and communication theorists.
