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: Philippine and Chamorro Linguistics Before the Advent of Structuralism
Edited By: Lawrence A. Reid
Emilio Ridruejo
Thomas Stolz
URL: http://www.oldenbourg-verlag.de/akademie-verlag/philippine-and-chamorro-linguistics-advent-structura
Series Title: Koloniale und Postkoloniale Linguistik / Colonial and Postcolonial Linguistics (KPL/CPL)
Description:

The papers assembled in this collection deal with the early linguistic sources on
the languages of the Philippines and Micronesia. Tagalog, Bikol, Cebuano,
Iloko, Chamorro and sundry languages of the area and beyond are featured in
the papers. The focus is on the first descriptive work devoted to these
languages and subsequent early treatments and their potential interdependency.
Several papers also address the issue of how “modern” the early grammarians
of Philippine languages were and to what extent they did typological linguistics
avant la lettre.

The collection is a pioneer contribution to the history of descriptive linguistics in
Southeast Asia and the West Pacific. Moreover it offers a window to the past
for the interested members of the modern speech communities of the languages
covered by the papers.
