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: Oxford Modern English Grammar
Written By: Bas Aarts
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199533190.do?keyword=9780199533190&sortby=bestMatches
Description:

Packed with tables, diagrams, and numerous example sentences, and assuming
no prior knowledge of grammatical concepts on the part of the reader, this
volume offers an unmatched guide to the structure of contemporary English.
Arranged in three clear parts for ease of use, the Grammar's comprehensive
coverage ranges from the very basic--such as word structure, simple and
complex phrases, and clause types--to the more sophisticated topics that
lie at the intersection of grammar and meaning, including tense and aspect,
mood and modality, and information structuring.
