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: Language Ideological Debates
Edited By: Jan Blommaert
Description:

Language-Ideological Debates presents analyses of historically situated discursive events -- debates -- during which ideas about language are formed, articulated, and authoritatively entextualized. The studies cover cases as diverse as Corsica, the US, Singapore, and Congo. Based on detailed empirical analyses, the book intends to fuel the theoretical discussion on language, history, and society.
