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: Online Communication in Language Learning and Teaching
Written By: Marie-Noëlle Lamy
Regina Hampel
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=275590
Description:

Online Communication in Language Learning and Teaching offers theoretical
and practical as well as research perspectives for approaching technologies
that support online communication for language learning. Examining tools
such as forums, chats, audio and visual real-time platforms as well as
virtual worlds and mobile devices, and reviewing the literature that deals
with such tools in use in educational settings, the authors identify key
theoretical issues (e.g. pedagogic developments in online language
learning, learning theories, teacher and student experience, assessment)
and offer a thorough appraisal of the potential benefits and challenges of
learning and teaching a language via these technologies. The authors talk
directly and practically to teachers about research issues of relevance to
them and suggest do-able small-scale projects, as well as providing an
extensive annotated collection of online resources.
