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: The Routledge Applied Linguistics Reader
Edited By: Li Wei
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415566209/
Description:

"The Routledge Applied Linguistics Reader" is an essential collection of
readings for students of Applied Linguistics. Divided into five sections:
Language Teaching and Learning, Second Language Acquisition, Applied
Linguistics, Identity and Power and Language Use in Professional Contexts,
the Reader takes a broad interpretation of the subject from its traditional
foundations in language teaching and learning to cover the newer
subdisciplines from corpus linguistics to forensic linguistics.

Using a multidisciplinary approach, the Reader focuses on the topics and
issues to which Applied Linguistics research has made a significant
contribution, in particular:

*our understanding of key concepts and notions in the study of real-world
problems in which language and communication play a central role
*the theoretical debates of broader social science issues that impact on
language teaching, learning and use
*the main methodological advances.

Featuring twenty-seven carefully selected readings, the Reader focuses on
both the major contributions of Applied Linguistics, and the conceptual and
theoretical issues of the subject in a variety of contexts and methods. The
selection comprises seminal articles from leading researchers, as well as
fresh perspectives from new voices in the subject. These Readings are
amplified by a general introduction as well as detailed, critical summaries
of each section, discussion questions and recommended further reading for
each article.
