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."


Book Information

   

Title: Young Bilingual Leaners in Nursery School
Written By: Linda Thompson
Series Title: Bilingual Education & Bilingualism No.18
Description:

This book presents the findings of an ethnolinguistic study of the language and social behaviour of a group of three-year-old British-born children from families of settled migrants who speak languages other than English in their homes and communities. The study draws from a number of research disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology and ethnography to provide an analytical description of the social and linguistic behaviour of the children during their first term in kindergarten. Although the study was located in the UK, the findings have implications for children in other societies where English is the formal language of education. The book will be of interest to teachers, parents and others interested in the lives of young children.
