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: Indo-European Linguistics
Written By: Michael Meier-Brügger
URL: http://www.degruyter.com
Series Title: de Gruyter Textbook / Walter de Gruyter
Description:

This textbook on Indo-European Linguistics is designed as an introduction to the field. It presents current topics and questions in Indo-European linguistics in a clear and informative manner. This translation is based on the 8th edition of the work first published by Hans Krahe (6th edition 1985) and it takes account of more recent research. While Krahe only considered phonology and morphology, the textbook also includes a comprehensive account of syntax and lexis. Manfred Mayrhofer assisted with the section of phonology; Matthias Fritz wrote the section on syntax and provided support for the project as a whole.
