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: Latino Language and Literacy in Ethnolinguistic Chicago
Edited By: Marcia Farr
Description:

This volume--along with its companion "Ethnolinguistic Chicago: Language
and Literacy in the City's Neighborhoods"--fills an important gap in
research on Chicago, one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the
United States and home to one of the largest and most diverse Latino
communities, and more generally, on language use in globalized metropolitan
areas. The focus is on the related issues of language and ethnicity.
