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: L2 Writing Development: Multiple Perspectives
Edited By: Rosa Manchón
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/44165?format=G
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics [TAL] 6
Description:

The aim of this pioneering volume is to advance our understanding of
written language learning in instructed SLA by offering a collection of
empirical studies in which the contribution of diverse theoretical
perspectives to our understanding of L2 writing development will be
explored. As such, the book represents a further attempt to situate written
language learning at the core of applied linguistics research, in general,
and SLA research, in particular, hence attempting to redress the oral bias
of theoretical and empirical work in these fields. It adds a further
building block onto recent TESOL initiatives aimed at understanding
"development" in second and foreign language learning. Continuity from one
chapter to another is provided by adherence to a consistent chapter model.
The volume will be of great interest to academics in the disciplines of
second/foreign language acquisition (SLA) and second/foreign language (L2)
writing.
