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: Genre, Relevance and Global Coherence
Subtitle: The Pragmatics of Discourse Type
Written By: Christoph Unger
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403985332
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
Description:

Genre, Relevance and Global Coherence seeks to explain how discourse types
or genre may influence the addressee's inferential processes in identifying
the communicator's intention. It examines global coherence-based accounts
as well as proposals based on Gricean pragmatics, arguing that the key to a
solution lies in the interplay of the cognitive and communicative
principles of relevance proposed by Sperber & Wilson. It unravels intricate
relations between cognitive mechanisms, communicative principles and
expectations of relevance in complex ostensive stimuli such as texts.
