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: Linguistic Meaning, Truth Conditions and Relevance
Written By: Corinne Iten
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=0333995732
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
Description:

The main argument of this book is that the notion of truth plays no role in
speaker-hearers' interpretation of linguistic utterances and that it is not
needed for theoretical accounts of linguistic meaning either. The
theoretical argument is developed in the first part, while the second part
supports it with cognitive relevance-theoretic, rather than truth-based,
analyses of the 'concessive' expressions but, although and even if.
