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."

Description:

Recuellis par les Prêtres des Missions Étrangères de Milan et mis en ordre par
le P.A.C.

On a conservé le texte des Missionaires avec l'orthographe du manuscrit
original. La pronunciation n'est pas indiquée sur la manuscrit; il est à
présumer qu'il faut donner aux lettres la valeur qu'elles ont pour les
italiens. On pourrait remplacer "tch" par "c" que l'on proncerait comme en
italien, "c" par "k", "dj" par "j"; "ll" a le son mouillé, à peu près "ii";
"sh" équivaut sans doute auc "ch" français, et "th" au "th" anglais. Le
manuscrit ne donnait aucune indication alphabetiqe, il est difficile de
connaîte la valeur de tous les signes employés (re-editon, originally
published 1881 in Milan, written in French).
