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:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

This systemic-functional account of Spanish, analyzes how Spanish
grammatical forms compare and contrast with those of English.

This book offers a systemic-functional account of Spanish, and analyzes how
Spanish grammatical forms compare and contrast with those of English. The
authors analyze Spanish according to the three main 'metafunctions':
ideational, interpersonal, and textual.

The result is a comprehensive examination of Spanish grammar from the
clause upwards. Presupposing little or no knowledge of Spanish, this book
will be of interest to researchers in Spanish language, systemic functional
linguistics or contrastive linguistics.
