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: Patterns, Meaningful Units and Specialized Discourses
Edited By: Ute Römer
Rainer Schulze
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BCT%2022
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 22
Description:

This collection of papers explores some facets in the areas of Corpus
Linguistics and Phraseology which have gone unnoticed so far. With the aid
of a range of different corpora and new-generation software tools, the
authors tackle specialized domains and discourse in specialized settings,
utilizing some innovative approaches to the study of recurrent features and
patterns in the languages of economics, history, linguistics, politics, and
other fields. The papers critically examine contemporary discourses in
which experts and laypersons are equally involved, showing that the spoken
and written texts, selected from various specialized corpora, can be seen
as collective memory banks. The series of reflections and specialized
meanings uncovered in these texts are closely tied to particular sequences
of patterned chunks in language and offer exciting insights into the
inseparability of lexis and grammar.

The contributions to this volume were previously published in "International
Journal of Corpus Linguistics" 13:3 (2008).
