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."

Abstract: In the early 1990s Jostein Gaarders' book 'Sophie's World' became a best-selling book mostly because Gaarder had succeeded in imparting cultural studies such as Philosophy and its history to children and young adults in a readily comprehensible way. This paper suggests the implementation of Philosophy and its history in the German (as a Foreign Language) classroom with Dutch and French native speakers in Belgium using the German translation of 'Sophie's World' and a wide variety of supplementary teaching material (movie, audio books, CDs, DVD, encyclopedia, games, etc.)
