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: Introducing Pragmatics in Use
Written By: Anne O'Keeffe

URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415450911/
Description:

Introducing Pragmatics in Use is a lively and accessible introduction to
pragmatics, which both covers theory and applies it to real spoken and
written data.

Pragmatics is the study of language in context, yet most textbooks rely on
invented language examples. This innovative textbook systematically draws
on language corpora to illustrate features such as creativity in small talk or
how we apologise in English. The authors investigate the pragmatic
implications of the globalization of the English language and focus on the
applications of pragmatics for teaching languages. In addition, a practical
chapter on researching pragmatics aimed at developing students’ research
skills is included.

With a range of tasks aimed at putting theory into practice and chapter by
chapter further reading recommendations, this is the ideal textbook for
advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students of pragmatics and corpus
linguistics within applied language/linguistics or TEFL/TESOL degrees.
