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."


Book Information

   

Title: A Grebo–English Dictionary
Written By: Gordon Innes
Description:

Originally published in 1967, this dictionary of Grebo, one of the Kru
languages spoken in South-west Liberia, will be of value not only to those
who are concerned with using the language, but also to scholars engaged in
comparative studies; the latter will have here a comprehensive and reliable
body of data, presented in an eminently usable form. All the Grebo material
is tone-marked, a point of particular importance in a language which is one
of the few in West Africa that distinguishes four tone-levels.
