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."

Description:

Dans les communautés kurdophones d'Arménie, le deuil, l'exil et l'héroïsme sont évoqués par un régime particulier d'énonciation. Mêlant ethnographie, analyse acoustique et linguistique, l'auteur montre que cet usage de la voix construit un idéal de vie reliant les vivants aux absents et aux défunts. In the Kurdish-speaking communities of Armenia, mourning, exile, and heroism are expressed through a specific system of utterances. Blending ethnography, acoustic analysis, and linguistics, the author shows that this use of the voice constructs a form of ideal life linking the living to the absent and deceased.
