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: Key Terms in Pragmatics
Edited By: Nicholas Allot
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=132338&SearchType=Basic
Series Title: Key Terms
Description:

Pragmatics is a core discipline within linguistics, but is without an
introduction organised by key terms -- until now. Key Terms In Pragmatics
succeeds in tackling this problem by giving students clear, explanatory
definitions of over 300 key terms in the field.

There are short intellectual biographies of key thinkers, and a list of key
works for further reading.

This book is essential reading for students on introductory and
intermediate courses on linguistics and language and communication,
especially those studying pragmatics and logic and meaning. It is also
useful to more advanced students of pragmatics who are looking for clear
definitions and for guidance on topics outside of their specialist area.
