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."
Ein Leben für die Wissenschaft / A Lifetime of Achievement
Salomo A. Birnbaum (1891 - 989) is the uncontested pioneer in two large closely related research areas, namely historical Jewish linguistics and the palaeography of Hebrew and all Jewish successor languages. This collection of essays provides a cross-section through Birnbaum’s life’s work. Volume II documents the development of Hebrew palaeography, which began to be established in the period between the 1930s and 1960s.
