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."

Abstract: The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) establishes air/ground communications procedures, both within the territory of a determined country and in situations involving interlinguistic contact. For these situations, since 2003, ICAO postulates English as an obligatory 'standard' and stipulates competence levels for pilots and air traffic controllers. /L/Within the framework of linguistic policies, in this work, we will present sociohistorical factors that prompted the selection of English as aviation's lingua franca, the debates that this choice and its implementation have generated in different countries, as well as the Argentinean position, trying to identify advantages and disadvantages of aviation English's globalization and to suggest how sociolinguistics can contribute to attenuate some of the associated problematics.
