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."

Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This volume brings together 22 contributions to the study of Arabic
dialects, from the Maghreb to Iraq by authors, who are all well-known for
their work in this field. It underscores the importance of different
theoretical approaches to the study of dialects, developing new frameworks
for the study of variation and change in the dialects, while presenting new
data on dialects (e.g., of Jaffa, Southern Sinai, Nigeria, South Morocco
and Mosul) and cross-dialectal comparisons (e.g., on the feminine gender
and on relative clauses). This collection is presented to Manfred Woidich,
one of the most eminent scholars in the field of Arabic dialectology.
