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: Research in Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Jörg U. Keßler
Dagmar Keatinge
Series Title: Empirical Evidence across Languages
Description:

Research in Second Language Acquisition: Empirical Evidence Across
Languages provides an overview of current research within the
Processability Theory framework (Pienemann 1998; 2005). The articles in
this volume combine a more theoretical approach in order to further extend
the theory and studies utilizing PT to further investigate bilingual
language acquisition and language development in natural and institutional
settings. Taking these different aspects into consideration, this volume is
organised in two parts. Part 1 Second Language Processing: Contributions to
Theory Development contains a number of papers discussing the inclusion of
further theoretical aspects into PT, focusing on English as a second
language. In Part 2 Second Language Grammars across Languages, PT is
applied to a number of typologically different languages and contexts.
