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: Cognition and Function in Language
Written By: Barbara A. Fox
Daniel Jurafsky
Laura A. Michaelis
Description:

Since the first CSDL conference held in San Diego in 1994, the CSDL series has created a spirited forum for exchange between practitioners of cognitive and functional linguistics. The papers in this volume focus on the motivations for linguistic patterning in human social and cognitive experience, and on the dynamic properties of language construal, use, and development. The papers collected here are a rich sampling of the complex data, innovative methods and fresh research questions undertaken by scholars in the cognitive-functional traditions. Among the main research avenues represented in this volume are grammaticalization, child language learning, categorization, conversational practice, and linguistic knowledge representation.
