Applied Linguistics by Guy Cook

Book Description

Applied Linguistics investigates real-world problems involving language. As such it has the difficult task of mediating between academic expertise and lived experience, attempting to reconcile opposed interests and perspectives. This clearly written introduction provides a concise but comprehensive overview of the most pressing and controversial issues surrounding contemporary language use today, including intercultural communication, political persuasion, new technologies, the growth of English, language in education, and foreign language teaching and learning.

Genetically Modified Language by Guy Cook Genetically Modified Language, Paperback (September 2004)

Written in a clear style and drawing on illustrative examples, Genetically Modified Language is an insightful look at how language shapes our opinions. Cook subjects the language of the case for GM to a careful and detailed examination and demonstrates that language which puports to seek clarity actually manipulates opinion.

Language Play, Language Learning by Guy Cook Language Play, Language Learning, Paperback (February 2000)

Language play should not be thought of as a trivial or peripheral activity, but as central to human thought and culture, to learning, creativity, and intellectual enquiry.
