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."
Chinese Matters: From Grammar to First and Second Language Acquisition
This book addresses topics in Chinese grammar and the acquisition of Chinese as a first and second language. The studies presented share a common framework and comparative perspective. Changing global perspectives bring new language contacts into focus, and the Chinese-Norwegian connection figures prominently among the contributions, which include investigations of Chinese-Norwegian bilingual children and Norwegian-speaking L2 learners of Chinese.
