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: Specialised Languages in the Global Village
Subtitle: A Multi-Perspective Approach
Edited By: Maida Watson
Description:

The status of LSP (Languages for Specialised Purposes) in the contemporary
socio-cultural context is an ongoing central issue of scholarly debate.
"Specialised Languages in the Global Village" examines the impact of
globalisation on intercultural communication within specialised communities
of practice. The contributions to the volume provide linguistically and
pedagogically-informed discussion on modes of communication practice in
professional and institutional domains, frames of social action and the
construction of professional identities. The contributors also address
issues of languages and social entrepreneurship, and the acquisition and
development of linguistic/cultural competence in foreign languages for
specialised purposes. The edition is a valuable resource for researchers in
LSP, specialists in the fields of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and
scholars in the area of rhetoric and composition. It will also be of
interest to professional translators, language editors and language
advisors in the fields of specialised academic/professional communication.
LSP instructors and foreign language teachers will also find informed
guidelines and useful pedagogical proposals for classroom implementation.
