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 Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Fieldwork
Edited By: Nicholas Thieberger
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199571888.do
Description:

This book offers a state-of-the-art guide to linguistic fieldwork, reflecting its
collaborative nature across the subfields of linguistics and disciplines such as
astronomy, anthropology, biology, musicology, and ethnography. Experienced
scholars and fieldworkers explain the methods and approaches needed to
understand a language in its full cultural context and to document it accessibly
and enduringly. They consider the application of new technological approaches
to recording and documentation, but never lose sight of the crucial relationship
between subject and researcher. The book is timely: an increased awareness
of dying languages and vanishing dialects has stimulated the impetus for
recording them as well as the funds required to do so. The handbook is an
indispensible source, guide, and reference for everyone involved in linguistic
and cultural fieldwork.
