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 Nuer Language
Written By: Diedrich Westermann
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

The Nuer who have received their name from their neighbours, the Dinkas,
Shilluks and Arabs, live in several separate sections in the Anglo-Egyptian
Sudan, and partly in Western Abyssinia. The Nuers belong to the Nilotic group.
The materials for this work were collected during a stay in Khartoum and on
Doleib Hill, a mission station. The study contains sections on sounds, parts of
speech, short sentences, and a vocabulary (Re-edition; originally published
1912 in Berlin: MSOS XV, III Abt.: 84-150, written in English).
