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."

The focus of this book is to provide an initiation to rigorous thinking about language form and language use. The main purpose of this book is two-fold: to acquaint you with the way in which linguists talk about the indispensable everyday tool constituted by language and to stir readers' curiousity about language matters and why language matters, beyond what this book has to offer.
