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: Language and the Brain
Written By: Loraine K. Obler

Series Title: Cambridge Approaches to Linguistics
Description:

How do our brains enable us to speak creatively and build up an
understanding of language? This accessible book examines the linguistic and
neuro-anatomical underpinnings of language and considers how language
skills can systematically break down in individuals with different types of
brain damage. By studying children with language disorders, adults with
right-hemisphere brain damage, demented patients and people with reading
problems, the authors provide an understanding of how language is organised
in the brain.
