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: English Phonology
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: Heinz J. Giegerich
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521336031
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

This is an introduction to the phonology of present-day English. It deals
principally with three varieties of English: "General American," Southern
British "Received Pronunciation" and "Scottish Standard English." It offers
a systematic and detailed discussion of the features shared by these major
accents, and explains some major differences. Other varieties of
English--Australian and New Zealand English, South African English and
Hiberno-English--are also discussed briefly. Without focusing on current
phonological theory and its evolution, the author demonstrates the
importance of "theory," in whatever shape or form, in phonological
argumentation. This textbook will be welcomed by all students of English
language and linguistics.
