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: Identity Trouble
Edited By: Carmen Rosa Caldas-Coulthard
Rick Iedema
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=270172
Description:

In Identity Trouble, international scholars from discourse analysis, social
semiotics, cultural theory, ethnography, conversational analysis,
organization and pedagogy studies, come together to focus on the rising
pressures on contemporary identity and on how people are increasingly
crossing the borders that traditionally define self, space, learning and
work. Particular attention is paid to occasions where our identity
accomplishment comes under threat, or fails - the troubles that emerge
during people's identity constructions and enactments as they face, or try
to explain, rising personal, social, cultural and organizational uncertainties.
