The Routledge Handbook of the English Writing System provides a comprehensive account of the English writing system, both in its current iteration and highlighting the developing trends that will influence its future. Twenty-nine chapters written by specialists from around the world cover core linguistic and psychological aspects, and also include areas from other disciplines such as typography and computer-mediated communication. Divided into five parts, the volume encompasses a wide range of approaches and addresses issues in the following areas: theory and the English writing system, discussing the effects of etymology and phonology; the history of the English writing system from its earliest development, including spelling, pronunciation and typography; the acquisition and teaching of writing, with discussions of literacy issues and dyslexia; English writing in use around the world, both in the UK and America, and also across Europe and Japan; computer-mediated communication and developments in writing online and on social media. The Routledge Handbook of the English Writing System is essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students working in this area.

What and how were nineteenth-century women taught through conduct books and hymnbooks? What did women learn about reading and writing at a state normal school and at the Cherokee Nation's female seminary? What did Radcliffe women think of rhetoric classes imported from Harvard? How did women begin to gain their voices through speaking and writing in literary societies and by keeping diaries and journals? How did African American women use literacy as a tool for social action? How did women's writing portray alternative views of the western frontier? The essays in this volume address these questions and more in exploring the gendered nature of education in the nineteenth century. These essays give a more complete picture of literacy in the nineteenth century. Part one presents a panoply of sites and cultural contexts in which women learned to write, including ideological contexts, institutional sites, and informal settings such as literary circles. Part two examines specific genres, texts, and "voices" of literate women and students of writing and speaking. Nineteenth-Century Women Learn to Write interweaves thick feminist social history with theoretical perspectives from such diverse fields as linguistics and folklore, feminist literary theory, and African American and Native American studies. The volume constitutes a major addition to traditional social science studies of literacy.
