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."

Description:

Now available in paperback

Within the European context, linguistic diversity can be studied at the
level of both official state languages and non-national languages. This
comprehensive overview offers insightful cross-national and
cross-continental perspectives on non-national languages in terms of both
regional and immigrant languages. The book focuses on mapping linguistic
diversity in both the private and public domain. Methodological issues and
empirical outcomes are explored for a variety of European and non-European
countries and languages.

The book consists of four parts. Part 1 provides an introduction to the
subject, as well as an overview and discussion of migration statistics and
language use. Part 2 deals with the mapping of regional languages in
Europe, exemplified by case studies on Welsh, Basque, and Frisian. Part 3
focuses on immigrant languages in Europe and includes case studies from
both national (Switzerland, Italy, France) and crossnational (Multilingual
Cities Project) perspectives. Part 4 turns to mapping linguistic diversity
abroad with case studies on Australia, South Africa, Turkey, and Japan.
