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."

Description:

With its 60 articles on some 200 terms, the dictionary provides a
description of the individual concepts in which 17th and 18th century
thinking on language was represented in texts. Account is taken not only of
the synchronic perspective and the continuation of tradition, but also of
the epochal dynamics which made it possible for 17th and 18th century
thinking on language to provide possible conceptualisations for succeeding
ages.
