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: Zutot 2003
Subtitle: Zutot: Perspectives on Jewish Culture 3
Edited By: Shlomo Berger
Michael Brocke
Irene E. Zwiep
Description:

Zutot: Perspectives on Jewish Culture aims to fill a gap that has become
more and more conspicuous among the wealth of scholarly periodicals in the
field of Jewish Studies. Whereas existing journals provide space to medium
and large sized articles, they neglect the small but poignant
contributions, which may be as important as the extended, detailed study.
The yearbook Zutot serves as a platform for small but incisive
contributions, and provides them with a distinct context. The substance of
these contributions is derived from larger perspectives and, though not
always presented in an exhaustive way, will have an impact on contemporary
discussions. Zutot covers Jewish Culture in its broadest sense, i.e.
encompassing various academic disciplines - literature, languages and
linguistics, philosophy, art, sociology, politics and history - and
reflects binary oppositions such as religious and secular, high and low,
written and oral, male and female culture.
