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 and identity policies in the 'glocal' age
Subtitle: New processes, effects, and principles of organization
Written By: Albert Bastardas-Boada
URL: http://llibreria.gencat.cat/product_info.php?products_id=5857&language=en
Description:

This book analyzes from an integrative perspective the different processes that are taking place in the “glocal” era– simultaneously global and local– such as the techno-economic globalization process, as the building up of politically supra-state entities and as the new migration movements, as well as the paths these processes seem to follow. The analysis indicates that there is a trend towards polyglottism in countries which used to be monolingual and that such trend will be fostered with the massive migration movements. In the conclusions the author urges to promote international communication, as well as the linguistic adaptation of immigrants and the building up of mutually shared identities.
