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: Genres in the Internet
Subtitle: Issues in the theory of genre
Edited By: Janet Giltrow
Dieter Stein
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20188
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 188
Description:

This volume brings together for the first time pragmatic, rhetorical, and
literary perspectives on genre, mapping theoretical frontiers and
initiating a long overdue conversation amongst these methodologies. The
diverse approaches represented in this volume meet on common ground staked
by Internet communication: an arena challenging to traditional ideas of
genre which assume a conventional stability at odds with the unceasing
innovations of online discourse. Drawing on and developing new ideas of
genre, the research reported in this volume shows, on the contrary, that
genre study is a powerful means of testing commonplaces about the Internet
world and, in turn, that the Internet is a fertile field for theorising genre.
