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: Papers in Laboratory Phonology V: Language Acquisition and the Lexicon
Edited By: Michael Broe
Janet B Pierrehumbert
Description:

Papers in Laboratory Phonology V sets two new themes: language acquisition
and lexical representation. Contributors tackle the central problem of what
constitutes a possible word in generative phonology, employing contemporary
approaches such as Optimality Theory, connectionism, and stochastic
grammars. Several papers integrate the issues of lexical representation and
language acquisition by undertaking to explain the organization of the
adult phonological system as the end product of the acquisition process.
This timely collection will be of interest to a wide range of researchers
in phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, and the study of speech disorders.
