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: The Cambridge Handbook of Phonology
Edited By: Paul V. de Lacy
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521848794
Description:

Phonology - the study of how the sounds of speech are represented in our
minds - is one of the core areas of linguistic theory, and is central to
the study of human language. This state-of-the-art handbook brings together
the world’s leading experts in phonology to present the most comprehensive
and detailed overview of the field to date. Focusing on the most recent
research and the most influential theories, the authors discuss each of the
central issues in phonological theory, explore a variety of empirical
phenomena, and show how phonology interacts with other aspects of language
such as syntax, morphology, phonetics, and language acquisition. Providing
a one-stop guide to every aspect of this important field, The Cambridge
Handbook of Phonology will serve as an invaluable source of readings for
advanced undergraduate and graduate students, an informative overview for
linguists, and a useful starting point for anyone beginning phonological
research.
