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: ELT
Subtitle: Converging Approaches and Challenges, Proceedings of the 7th International and 11th National Conference of the Association of Teachers of English of the Czech Republic (ATECR)
Edited By: Christoph Haase
Natalia Orlova
Description:

This volume represents an outgrowth of the VIIth international ATECR
conference, which brought together researchers and educators from fields as
diverse as language teaching in a variety of contexts, corpus linguistics or
literary studies. The contributions in this volume show - despite their diversity
- a strong common denominator: to bundle efforts and unify parameters in
order to optimize English Language Teaching as a world-wide endeavor.
Thus, for our teaching it can only be beneficial when linguists talk to literary-
minded teachers or methodology specialists investigate whether their
theoretical underpinnings make their way into practice by talking to language
instructors or language service providers. In general, the authors present a
multifaceted picture of the English Language teaching context with
themselves as practitioners but also as investigators and researchers at the
same time. The research that reflects back on their teaching thus creates a
force-feedback loop not only for the investigating scholar but also for the
practicing instructor who reapplies his/her knowledge after failed or
suboptimal attempts as evidenced by the data.
