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."

Description:

Experimental Methods in Language Acquisition Research provides students and
researchers interested in language acquisition with comprehensible and
practical information on the most frequently used methods in language
acquisition research. It includes contributions on first and child/adult
second language learners, language-impaired children, and on the
acquisition of both spoken and signed language. Part I discusses specific
experimental methods, explaining the rationale behind each one, and
providing an overview of potential participants, the procedure and
data-analysis, as well as advantages and disadvantages and dos and don’ts.
Part II focuses on comparisons across groups, addressing the theoretical,
applied and methodological issues involved in such comparative work. This
book will not only be of use to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate
students, but also to any scholars wishing to learn more about a particular
research method. It is suitable as a textbook in postgraduate programs in
the fields of linguistics, education and psychology.
