New publications on prescriptivism

This morning, I found the following email from Carol Percy in my mailbox

This email is being sent to the addresses of people who presented and/or attended and/or in some way supported the 2009 conference on Prescriptivism & Patriotism. I hope that the last three years have been good for you. Thank you again for your interest in the conference, and my apologies for the monolingualism of this message and for any duplication across lists.

I’m writing to let you know about some related publications.

In March 2011, a selection of papers in and/or on French was published, edited by Anne-Marie Brousseau.  I am very happy to say that  Identités linguistiques, langues identitaires : à la croisée du prescriptivisme et du patriotisme is freely accessible online, with abstracts in both French and English.

A selection of papers written in English has just been published by Multilingual Matters. You can view the Table of Contents of Languages of Nation: Attitudes and Norms on the publisher’s web page. If you are based at a university or college and think that Languages of Nation would be appropriate for its collection, please feel free to ask your librarian to order it. (It should be appearing at the University of Toronto in due course.)

In any case, thank you again for your support of the conference in 2009. All best wishes for the future! Sincerely, Carol Percy on behalf of the organizers.
