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: Papers in Austronesian Subgrouping and Dialectology
Edited By: John Bowden
Nikolaus P. Himmelmann
Series Title: Pacific Linguistics
Description:

This book is a collection of papers taking different approaches to the
problems of classifying languages and varieties of languages within the
Austronesian language family. A number of different approaches to
historical genetic classification are taken in the papers by Mark Donohue
on southeast Sulawesi, Malcolm Ross on Malayic languages, and Jae Jung Song
on the Micronesian languages. The papers by Victoria Rau and René van den
Berg deal with dialectology of Atayal from Taiwan and Muna from southeast
Sulawesi respectively. Terry Crowley’s paper presents an emic approach to
language classification by looking at different indigenous ways of
classifying Oceanic languages and language varieties.
