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."
Spanish is spoken in many countries around the world, and like all languages, different forms of Spanish express different levels of formality. Taking these variations in Spanish into account, this book describes the most important linguistic features of the language. The book is an ideal resource for teachers and students of Spanish, and no prior linguistic knowledge is assumed.
