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: Phonological Representations, Their Names, Forms and Powers
Written By: John S. Coleman
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521472083
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 85
Description:

This book reviews current theories of the sound-structure of words and
syllables. Dr. Coleman presents technical arguments showing that the
contemporary theories are too complex and that a simpler theory,
Declarative Phonology, is adequate. This theory is exemplified with
detailed accounts of the sound-structure of words and syllables in English
and Japanese.
