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: The Handbook of Clinical Linguistics
Written By: Martin J. Ball
Michael R. Perkins
Nicole Müller
Sara Howard
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=1444338773
Series Title: Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Now in paperback, “The Handbook of Clinical Linguistics” brings together an
international team of contributors to produce an original and in-depth survey of
this multi-faceted field. It fills a gap in the existing literature as the first non-
encyclopedic volume to provide comprehensive, up to date coverage of this
ever-expanding area of linguistics.

Relevant chapters include a range of pathologies, with each section exploring
multilingual and cross-linguistics aspects of the field, as well as analytical
methods and assessment. In those chapters examining a specific area of
linguistics, a section has been included which outlines how mainstream theories
and descriptions of language have been influenced, if at all, by clinical research.
The result is an essential resource for students and practitioners of speech-
language pathology, linguistics, psychology, and education.
