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."

Series Title: Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

A comprehensive introduction to the ways in which meaning is conveyed in

that are usually considered to fall under pragmatics. A major aim is to
highlight the richness and subtlety of meaning phenomena, rather than to
expound any particular theory.
