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."
Other Children, Other Languages: Issues in the Theory of Language Acquisition
This volume investigates the implications of the study of populations other than educated, middle-class, normal children and languages other than English on a universal theory of language acquisition. The authors represent different theoretical orientations and place emphasis on the ways in which data from pathology and from a variety of languages may affect universal generalizations.
