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."

URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/176272?format=G&rskey=Ad7FLx&result=6
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Documentation [TiLDOC] 15-4
Description:

Volume 4 includes unique records of Orok (Uilta), a Tungusic language
(dictionaries, texts, grammatical comments) noted down by Pilsudski directly
from native informants at the beginning of the 20th century on Sakhalin. The
original source material is identified with the help of - and confronted against - all
the existing contemporary dictionaries with the assistance of leading specialists
in the field (the Novosibirsk Avrorin group, also called the school of Manchu-
Tungusologists). Abundant comparative data are quoted.

All necessary introductory information and commentaries of ethnographic,
historical, and linguistic nature are provided. Archival photos taken by Pilsudski
are juxtaposed with related contemporary photos especially taken for this
purpose. In addition, samples of original manuscript pages are reproduced.
Bibliographical data and indices are provided in conformity with the previous
volumes.
