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."

Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 2
Description:

The articles collected in this volume draw on or relate to a body of work
that has become known as the New Literacy Studies (NLS), which studies
literacy as situated semiotic practices that vary across sites in specific
ways that are socially shaped. The collection offers a body of empirically
and theoretically based papers on literacy ethnography as well as providing
engagements with critical issues around literacy and education. The
articles offer complementary perspectives on research and theory in
literacy studies and include research perspectives from Africa, Asia,
Australia, Europe, as well as North and South America. The researchers are
all concerned to take the work of the New Literacy Studies further by
expanding on its conceptual resources and research sites.
