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: A Brief Account of Malayalam Phonetics
Written By: L.V.R. Aiyar
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 39
Description:

I give below a list of the International Phonetic Association symbols that I have requisioned for the following concise discussion of the phonetic habits of the Malayalam language. The symbols below represent the sounds occuring in the pronuciation of the people of the Cochin State, which, situated as it is right in the central portion of Malabar or the Malayalam speaking land, has a great degree preserved the true Malayalam sounds free from contamination of the Kannada or Kanarese influence in the north and Tamil in the south (from the preface). (Re-edition; originally published 1927 in London).
