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: Second Language Writing Research
Subtitle: Perspectives on the Process of Knowledge Construction
Edited By: Paul Kei Matsuda
Tony Silva
Description:

In this original volume, eighteen researchers from different parts of the
world reflect on their own research projects, providing insights into key
methodological issues in research on second language writing. By offering a
glimpse into the process of constructing and negotiating knowledge in the
field--the messy space of situated practices of inquiry--it helps to
demystify the research process, which can appear in published studies and
in introductory methodology guides to be neater and more orderly than it
actually is.
