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: Tokyo University of Foreign Studies 4
Description:

This volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of current research and
developments on the use of learner corpora perceived from developmental
and crosslinguistic perspectives. The book is divided into two parts. The
eleven contributions of Part I investigate the development of English
language skills of young learners across seven countries/regions on the basis
of a new corpus resource called the International Corpus of Crosslinguistic
Interlanguage (ICCI).

Part II contains seven papers devoted to other varieties of learner corpora,
especially spoken learner corpora and learner corpora of languages other than
English. Presenting original research in corpus linguistics, this book will be of
interest to researchers and postgraduates in the fields of learner corpus
research and second language acquisition and those who wish to apply
corpus methodology in teaching and learning.
