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: Linguistic Landscape in the City
Edited By: Elana Shohamy
Eliezer Ben-Rafael
Monica Barni
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692979
Description:

This book focuses on linguistic landscapes in present-day urban settings.
In a wide-ranging collection of studies of major world cities, the authors
investigate both the forces that shape linguistic landscape and the impact
of the linguistic landscape on the wider social and cultural reality. Not
only does the book offer a wealth of case studies and comparisons to
complement existing publications on linguistic landscape, but the editors
aim to investigate the nature of a field of study which is characterised by
its interest in 'ordered disorder'. The editors aspire to delve into
linguistic landscape beyond its appearance as a jungle of jumbled and
irregular items by focusing on the variations in linguistic landscape
configurations and recognising that it is but one more field of the shaping
of social reality under diverse, uncoordinated and possibly incongruent
structuration principles.
