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: Clinical Sociolinguistics
Edited By: Martin J. Ball
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/1405112506
Series Title: Language in Society
Description:

Sociolinguistics, the study of the interaction of language and society, has
had a major impact on linguistics for the last half-century. However, this
prominent branch of the language sciences has had little contact with the
field of communication disorders. Clinical Sociolinguistics, a collection
of newly commissioned articles written by top scholars, is a major advance
in bringing the two fields together.

Part I includes chapters that outline findings from sociolinguistic
research and point to the relevance of such findings for practicing
speech-language pathologists. Topics discussed include bilingualism,
code-switching, language planning, and a detailed look at African American
English.

Part II contains chapters that specifically demonstrate how these research
paradigms can be applied to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment in the
clinical situation.


"Individuals acquire language, and lose it, in a variety of contexts.
Gender, geography, socioeconomic status and bilingualism are all relevant
to clinical reasoning about speech and language disorders. This timely
volume is grounded in state-of-the art sociolinguistic research, but also
demonstrates the application of sociolinguistic thinking to the clinical
situation. It will be an invaluable text for those professionals faced with
linguistically and culturally diverse client groups, and for students and
researchers in communication disorders."
