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: Historische Sprachwissenschaft [Historical Linguistics]
Subtitle: Erkenntnisinteressen, Grundlagenprobleme, Desiderate
Edited By: P├ęter Maitz

Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 110
Description:

Contemporary historical linguistics is characterized by basic instabilities
in its theoretical foundations. The studies in this volume both reveal and
question this theoretical instability. The authors reflect about the
potentials and limitations of different paths to knowledge, different
underlying theoretical and methodological principles, as well as about
those aspects of research on the history of language linked to the history
of science and epistemology.
