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: The Oxford Handbook of Laboratory Phonology
Edited By: Abigail C. Cohn
Cécile Fougeron
Marie K. Huffman
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199575039.do
Series Title: Oxford Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of research in laboratory
phonology. Laboratory phonology denotes a research perspective, not a
specific theory: it represents a broad community of scholars dedicated to
bringing interdisciplinary experimental approaches and methods to bear on
how spoken language is structured, learned and used; it draws on a wide
range of tools and concepts from cognitive and natural sciences. This book
describes the investigative approaches, disciplinary perspectives, and
methods deployed in laboratory phonology, and highlights the most promising
areas of current research.

Part one introduces the history, nature, and aims of laboratory phonology.
The remaining four parts cover central issues in research done within this
perspective, as well as methodological resources used for investigating these
issues. Contributions to this volume address how laboratory phonology
approaches have provided insight into human speech and language structure
and how theoretical questions and methodologies are intertwined. This
Handbook, the first specifically dedicated to the laboratory phonology
approach, builds on the foundation of knowledge amassed in linguistics,
speech research and allied disciplines. With the varied interdisciplinary
contributions collected, the Handbook advances work in this vibrant field.
