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: Critical Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: Theory and Interdisciplinarity
Edited By: Gilbert Weiss
Ruth Wodak
Description:

Can discourse analysis techniques adequately deal with complex social
phenomena? What does 'interdisciplinarity' mean for theory building and the
practise of empirical research? This volume provides an innovative and
original debate on critical theory and discourse analysis, focussing on the
extent to which CDA can and should draw on the theory and methodology of a
range of discilplines within the social sciences. The contributors to the
volume are themselves international and multi-disciplinary, and the
collection is organised to address in turn the development of CDA over the
past two decades, the deabte on interdisciplinarity, impliactions for
discourse - analytical theory and applications.
