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: Using French
Written By: R. E. Batchelor
Malcolm Offord
Description:

This is a new, thoroughly revised edition of the acclaimed Using French. It
provides guidance for those who have already acquired the basics of French
and wish to extend their knowledge of the language. Unlike conventional
grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of the vocabulary and
grammatical usage of contemporary French that cause most difficulty to
English-speakers, and incorporates the concept of register differences
throughout. Clearly laid out and easy to consult, it will prove invaluable
to all who wish to improve their fluency and confidence in French.
