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: English and Empowerment in the Developing World
Edited By: Nasreen Hussain
Azra Ahmed
Mohammad Zafar
Description:

This book is a collection of thought-provoking papers that investigate
empowerment within the context of language, education, and technology. In
the seventeen papers published in the book, local and international ELT
practitioners and researchers have analysed their experiences within a
range of sociolinguistic situations. Adding significant insights and depth
to a previously under-researched area, the publication will be of interest
not only to ELT teachers and students, but also to social science
researchers in developing and marginalised countries.
The book based on selected papers presented at the 2007 Aga Khan
University, Centre of English Language seminar in Karachi exemplifies the
issues of language and empowerment. The papers deal with complex
educational and socio-cultural issues and force readers to undertake a
cultural journey to see them from a different perspective. The collection
of papers, whatever one’s teaching-learning context, will become an
essential resource book for all English language teachers, scholars, and
researchers interested in learning more about the success stories and
problems facing language education in the developing countries, especially
Asia today.
