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: Sustaining Language Diversity in Europe
Subtitle: Evidence from the Euromosaic Project
Written By: Glyn Williams
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403998167
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Minority Languages and Communities
Description:

Adopting a post-structuralist approach in analyzing the Euromosaic data
about European minority language groups, Glyn Williams argues that
different states construct minority language groups and speakers in
different ways. This leads to an argument about the nature of democracy and
how the current changes in governmental discourses accommodate linguistic
and cultural diversity.
