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."

Series Title: LINCOM Classica
Description:

The present volume has demanded a year’s continuous work and a good deal of
anxious consideration from us both. But we shall be more than rewarded if it can
do anything to extend the share which English-speaking students can claim in
the marvellous increase of exact knowledge which the book itself records. It is
the boast of modern discovery to have made the world more thinkable and
human life more full of meaing in a thousand ways; and before the century
reaches its close, Comparative Philology, that is, the History of Language, will
have attained no mean rank in the great sisterhood of sciences whose task is to
explore the history of man (adapted from the preface of the translators).

Content: The numerals, The cases of Nouns (Singular, Dual, Plural, Metaplastic
Systems of Declension, Tables of Noun Declension), Pronouns ( Pronouns with
Gender, their cases, Singular, Dual, Plural, Personal Pronouns and their
Possessives), (re-edition, 1892, New York; written in English).
