Language and Power in the Modern World by Mary Talbot
Book DescriptionThis book explores key areas of modern society in which language is used to form power and social relations. These are presented in five sections: Language and the Media Language and Organisations Language and Gender Language and Youth Multilingualism, Identity and Ethnicity With a unique combination of selected readings and student-centred tasks in a single volume, the book covers contemporary issues in language and power, ranging from the global to the interpersonal. Each area - and each reading chosen to explore it - is substantially contextualised and discussed through a detailed introduction and then followed up with related activities. Each section comprises: *a substantial, specific introduction which draws students' attention to key themes and issues relevant to its topic; *a set of four or five selected readings which encourages students to locate critically these issues in context; *a task, or set of tasks, obliging students to undertake 'hands-on' linguistic analysis of data and engage in more sophisticated discussion of pertinent issues. *In-depth exploration of a variety of approaches to the study of language and power *Unique combination of advanced readings, student-centred tasks and editorial guidance *Hands-on activities at the end of each chapter
