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: Teaching Foreign Languages
Subtitle: Languages for Special Purposes
Edited By: Georgeta Raţă
Description:

Teaching Foreign Languages: Languages for Special Purposes is a collection
of essays which will appeal to teachers of modern languages no matter the
level of instruction.

The essays deal with three main approaches of the teaching of languages for
special purposes in Europe, Asia and Africa:

*theoretical linguistics (lexis: French vocabulary; and semantics: French
copulative verbs);

*descriptive linguistics (compared linguistics: English – Romanian, English –
Serbian, French – Romanian, French – Serbian, and German – Macedonian);

*applied linguistics (language acquisition: English in Romania and Spanish in
Serbia; language education: Arabic in Italy, English in Bosnia-Herzegovina,
Croatia, Iran, Malaysia, Russia, Serbia, and the United Arab Emirates;
German in Serbia; lexicography: English, French, Romanian, Ruthenian and
Serbian; stylistics: English, French and Spanish; and translation: English,
Italian and Romanian).
