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: Interdisciplinarity and Languages
Subtitle: Current Issues in Research, Teaching, Professional Applications and ICT
Edited By: Francisca Suau-Jiménez
Barry Pennock-Speck
Series Title: Contemporary Studies in Descriptive Linguistics - Volume 30
Description:

This volume offers a state-of-the-art view of research into interdisciplinarity,
language and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) by providing
an overview of teaching proposals within a university context.
Interdisciplinarity is understood here as how language expresses the
discourse and lexis of specialised knowledge in science, technology and the
professions. Language helps in the creation of these different fields and
constitutes a strategic tool that, if harnessed correctly, will facilitate
competitiveness on an international level in order to boost technological,
scientific, economic and educational growth. Interdisciplinarity, language and
ICTs should be taken into account to address the real needs of industry,
commerce and translation in educational institutions and the professions.
The contributions in this volume address themes that are crucial to the
demands of modern society: intercultural business communications, one of
the most challenging areas of specialised discourse and commerce; ICT and
specialised translation, a current issue of the utmost relevance; terminology
applied to translation; language acquisition in virtual environments; training
interpreters through ICT; exploring the commercial needs of language
industries; corpus-based research and ICT applications in specialised
dictionaries; university e-learning courses; and the state of research on
specialised languages in Latin America.
