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: The Uralic Languages
Edited By: Daniel Abondolo
Description:

This book provides a unique survey of individual Uralic languages and sub-groupings from Finnish to Selkup and Obugrian to Samoyedic. Giving both an overview and then detailed analyses of the Uralic languages, the volume describes their history and development as well as focusing on their linguistic structure. Each chapter is similarly-structured, designed for comparative study and including phonology, morphology, syntax, lexicon and sample text where available. Each includes numerous tables to support and illustrate the text and bibliographies of the major references in each language to aid further study.
