Description

This is a completely updated and expanded second edition of "Language, Society and Power," Lively and accessible, it looks at the ways in which language functions, how it influences thought and how it varies according to age, ethnicity, class and gender. How can a language reflect the status of children and older people? Do men and women talk differently? How can our use of language mark our ethnic identity? The book also looks at language use in politics and the media and examines how language affects and constructs our identities, exploring notions of correctness and attitudes towards language use.
This second edition has been fully updated to include recent developments in theory and research and offers the following features: *new, relevant and engaging examples drawn from everyday life: conversation transcripts, novels including Ian McEwan's "Atonement," television and the internet
*new activities designed to give students a real understanding of the area
*an international perspective with examples from the world's press, including "The Washington Post," the "Daily Mail" and the "New Zealand" "Listener"
*updated and expanded further reading sections and glossary.
"Language Society and Power" remains an essential introductory text for students of English language and linguistics, and will also be of use to students of media, communication, cultural studies, sociology and psychology.This is a completely updated and expanded second edition of "Language, Society and Power," Lively and accessible, it looks at the ways in which language functions, how it influences thought and how it varies according to age, ethnicity, class and gender.
