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."

Language Acquisition in Bilingual and Atypical Populations: Focus on Developmental Comparisons
Guest-Edited by Tania Ionin

This Special Issue investigates the theoretical mechanisms behind language development in different populations, addressing such empirical research questions as:
• How does age affect linguistic development?
• Is cross-linguistic transfer attested for different types of populations, such as simultaneous vs. sequential bilinguals?
• Is there a critical period for language acquisition, and does it affect development as well as ultimate attainment?
• What are the relative contributions of cognitive vs. linguistic maturity in the development of children with SLI, cognitive impairments or autism?
• Is the source of language difficulty or language breakdown different across populations?
