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: Understanding English Grammar
Subtitle: A Linguistic Approach - Second Edition
Written By: Ronald Wardhaugh
Description:

*NEW EDITION*
Understanding English Grammar presents the essentials of English structure comprehensibly to students who have had little or no opportunity to study the language, and does so within a framework derived from modern linguistic theory. Students, however, require no previous knowledge of linguistics. Through use of this book, students will gain an understanding of what is involved in the scholarly study of language and, while doing so, acquire a considerable knowledge of English grammar.
