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: Sociolinguistics in Japanese Contexts
Written By: Takesi Sibata
Edited By: Fumio Inoue
Daniel Long
Tetsuya Kunihiro
Series Title: Contributions to the Sociology of Language, 81
Description:

The book presents a collection of papers by Takesi Sibata, one of the leading linguists in Japan and a pioneer in the field of Japanese sociolinguistics. While incorporating numerous ideas from Western linguistics, Japanese sociolinguistics has developed largely independently from Western tradition. The volume not only makes accessible the work of a most influential scholar but, at the same time, provides an overdue introduction to the field of Japanese sociolinguistics.
