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."

Essays on François Recanti's Philosophy of Language
Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
The distinguished philosopher of language, François Recanati, has proposed a wide-ranging truth-conditional model of pragmatics. In this collection, various aspects of his theories are addressed by distinguished contributors, and are then commented on or answered by Recanati himself so that the reader is drawn into the central debate within philosophy of language and cognitive science as to what kind of pragmatics system is needed.
