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."

Description:

This essential work with its more than a thousand maps and commentaries is
the first to document the surname stock of the Federal Republic of Germany by
statistical occurrence and geographical distribution. It meets the interests of
linguists with a grammatical part (three volumes) dealing with the phonematics,
graphematics, morphematics and syntagmatics of family names, while cultural
historians and population historians are served with a lexical part (three volumes
- surnames by place of origin and domicile, by occupation and by nicknames,
by given names). The atlas provides a new basis for onomastics. It also
presents an indispensable aid to other disciplines from social history through
research into settlement and migration to genetics.
