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: Discourse, Communication & Tourism
Edited By: Adam Jaworski
Annette Pritchard
Description:

For the first time ever, this book brings together an explicit linkage
between empirical and theoretical perspectives on tourism and discourse. A
broad social semiotic approach is adopted to analyze a range of spoken,
written and visual texts providing a unique resource for researching and
teaching tourism in the context of communication studies. Some of the key
concepts explored in its chapters include space, representation, the
tourist experience, identity, performance and authenticity, and the
contributors are key sociologists of tourism as well as discourse analysts
and sociolinguists.
