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:

In a constantly interconnected world communication takes place beyond territorial boundaries, in networks where English works as a lingua franca.

Implications of findings in ELF and ELT terms are also discussed.
