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."


Academic Paper


Title: Industry Watch: Language technology, meet social networking
Author: Robert Dale
Institution: Macquarie University
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Computational Linguistics
Abstract: Here's a round-up of notable events in the commercial language technology space in the last quarter of 2007, organized by broad application category. A common thread that pops up throughout many of these is the integration of language technology into social networking applications and other related Web 2.0 themes. I'd put my money on this being a hot direction in 2008.
