Francesca Pridham, Winstanley Sixth Form College, Wigan, UK,
LANGUAGE OF CONVERSATION
		
"This is a wonderful starting point for anyone interested
in finding out how the language of conversation works. The
issues are clearly related to the reader's own experiences,
which makes the subject truly come alive."
	Ishtla Singh, Roehampton Institute, London
		
The Language of Conversation analyzes exactly what happens
during conversation and why it happens. The author also
discusses the structure, purpose, and features of
conversation. Francesca Pridham has succeeded in explaining
theory in a simple, practical way without jargon and
provides a clear introduction to technical terms. Intertext
series.
