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:

This textbook provides an introduction into linguistically based language
criticism for students of German studies and other philologies as well as
for general readers interested in language criticism. The critique focuses
on the merits of the German language with respect to acquisition,
perception, recognition and presentation of the so-called extralinguistic
reality. The approaches and practical possibilities of language criticism
are presented from three perspectives: "Linguistics, Language Didactics"
and from the point of view of the general public interested in language
("Folk Linguistics").
