Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students.

Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings – all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible ‘two-dimensional’ structure is built around four sections – introduction, development, exploration and extension – which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

  • contains newly expanded coverage of morphology, updated and revised exercises, and an extended Further Reading section

  • uses a wide variety of real texts and images from around the world, including a Monty Python sketch, excerpts from novels such as Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, and news items from Metro and the BBC
  • provides updated classic readings by the key names in the discipline, including Guy Cook, Andy Kirkpatrick and Zoltán Dörnyei
  • is accompanied by a website with extra activities, project ideas for each unit, suggestions for further reading, links to essential English language resources, and course templates for lecturers

Professional Communication - Consultancy, Advocacy, Activism (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2020): Louise Mullany Professional Communication - Consultancy, Advocacy, Activism (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2020)
Louise Mullany
R2,956 Discovery Miles 29 560 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This edited book presents contemporary empirical research investigating the use of language in professional settings, drawing on the contributions of a set of internationally-renowned authors. The book takes a critical approach to understanding professional communication in a range of fields and global contexts. Split into three parts, covering Business and Organisations, Healthcare, and Politics and Institutions, the contributors explore how and why academics engage in workplace research which takes the form of 'consultancy', 'advocacy' and 'activism'. In light of an ever-changing, ever-demanding global landscape, this volume offers new theoretical and methodological ways of conducting professional communication research with real-world impact. It will be of interest to linguistics and communication researchers and practitioners, particularly those working in sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, business communication, health communication, political communication, language and the law and organisational studies.

Language, Gender and Feminism introduces students to key theoretical perspectives, methodology and analytical frameworks in the field of feminist linguistic analysis, providing readers with a comprehensive survey of the current state of the field. The book is split into three parts, designed to integrate theory, practice, methodology and analysis. The first part presents students with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to understand the field of study and the issues which surround it. The second part establishes the wide range of contemporary theories and approaches that feminist linguists take to gender and language study. The final part focuses on methodology and outlines research methods that can be adopted to conduct written and spoken language analysis, as well as a focus on reflexivity, ethics and the importance of producing research of practical relevance. A defining feature of the book is that it contains practical examples in every chapter in order to ensure that students can clearly observe the practical applications of all current theories and approaches. Within each chapter, a variety of current issues are explored in conjunction with specific case study illustrations. The case studies present readers with concrete examples of the most recent research developments which have focused upon these crucial areas of development. Examples are taken both from the authors' own research and from other researchers' studies which use data from a range of different global locations. This textbook ensures that both authentic spoken and written data from a wealth of different contexts, settings and sources are thoroughly analysed. Areas covered include: politics, religion, the workplace, education, cyberspace, media discourse, music, literary works, the family and friendship groups. Language, Gender and Feminism will be an invaluable introductory text for students of language and gender studies, communication studies and wo

Have you ever noticed an accent or puzzled over a dialect phrase? Language can be a powerful tool with which one can create a persona; it can be a common ground between people or can be used as a divide between social groups. This Companion is for anyone who is interested in how and why people speak and write with such diversity.

The Routledge Companion to Sociolinguistics includes articles by leading scholars in the field on:

  • methods of observation and analysis
  • social correlates
  • socio-psychological factors
  • socio-political factors
  • language change.

With a substantial A-Z glossary of key terms and concepts, directions for further study, and detailed cross-referencing with links to the glossary, The Routledge Companion to Sociolinguistics is both an essential broad-based introduction for those new to the field, and a highly useful reference for the more advanced linguist.
