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."
Bohuslav Havránek (1893–1978) belonged to the core of the Prague School and after the death of Vilém Mathesius he was even the president of the Prague Linguistic Circle. In spite of this he is almost unknown in the world. With the present volume, the authors wish – in the year of the 120th anniversary of Havránek’s birth – to remind the world linguistics of his existence.
