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: Receptive Multilingualism
Subtitle: Linguistic analyses, language policies and didactic concepts
Edited By: Jan D. ten Thije
Ludger Zeevaert
Series Title: Hamburg Studies on Multilingualism 6
Description:

Receptive multilingualism refers to the language constellation in which
interlocutors use their respective mother tongue while speaking to each
other. Since the mid-nineties receptive multilingualism is promoted by the
European commission on par with other possibilities of increasing the
mobility of the European citizens. Throughout the last ten years a marked
increase in the research on this topic has been observable. This volume
reveals new perspectives from different theoretical frameworks on
linguistic analyses of receptive multilingualism in Europe. Case studies
are presented from contemporary settings, along with analyses of historical
examples, theoretical considerations and, finally, descriptions of
didactical concepts established in order to transfer and disseminate
receptive multilingual competence. The book contains results from research
carried out at the Research Center on Multilingualism at the University of
Hamburg as well as contributions by various international scholars working
in the field of receptive multilingualism.
