An innovative 'two-dimensional' design enables easy and flexible use. A companion website will be launched to coincide with publication of the book. Language in Theory: *provides a comprehensive introduction to the conceptual frameworks which underpin the study of language *draws on a wide range of texts from recipes by Nigella Lawson to briefings by Donald Rumsfeld and writings by John Berger and Toni Morrison *provides classic readings by the key names in the field from Derrida and Foucault to Lakoff and Johnson.
