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: Beyond Yellow English
Subtitle: Toward a Linguistic Anthropology of Asian Pacific America
Edited By: Angela Reyes
Adrienne Lo
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics
Description:

"Beyond Yellow English" is the first edited volume to examine issues of
language, identity, and culture among the rapidly growing Asian Pacific
American (APA) population. The distinguished contributors-who represent a
broad range of perspectives from anthropology, sociolinguistics, English, and
education-focus on the analysis of spoken interaction and explore multiple
facets of the APA experience. Authors cover topics such as media
representations of APAs; codeswitching and language crossing; and
narratives of ethnic identity. The collection examines the experiences of
Asian Pacific Americans of different ethnicities, generations, ages, and
geographic locations across home, school, community, and performance sites.
