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: Researching Specialized Languages
Edited By: Vijay K. Bhatia
Purificación Sánchez Hernández
Pascual Pérez-Paredes
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/scl.47
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 47
Description:

The present collection of articles represents research efforts in the field of
specialised languages, including the analysis of research articles in disciplines
as diverse as Biomedicine and Computing, on the one hand, and overlapping
disciplines such as in Social Sciences, on the other, all with high relevance to
English for Academic Purposes, and English for specific Purposes. The volume
offers empirical evidence obtained from corpus-based analyses of language,
both from diachronic as well as synchronic perspectives, on topics such as the
role of mother tongue in professional writing, the analysis of conference
abstracts as a genre, or the analysis of visual data transfer. This collection
addresses issues such as the implementation of lexicons for specialised
language learning, and the development of ontologies to research language
patterns. The volume thus provides a rich repertoire of research methodologies,
in-depth analyses of specialised discourses, and the identification and
discussion of relevant pedagogic issues.
