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: Wahrnehmungsdialektologie
Subtitle: Das Obersächsische im Alltagsverständnis von Laien
Written By: Christina Ada Anders
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110221336-1
Series Title: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 36
Description:

How do ordinary people perceive regional modes of speech? This question is
often posed at present within German dialectology, without however having
produced a satisfactory answer. As part of an empirical pilot study in
Saxony, Saxon-Anhalt, Thuringia and South Brandenburg, the present
investigation uses the example of Upper Saxon to examine how the structures
of everyday language-related knowledge can be observed and described, to
look at the parameters within which this knowledge is organised and to
determine the role played by extra-linguistic factors in the perception of
dialects.
