Language & Characterisation: People in Plays & other Texts explores
how the words of a text create a particular impression of a character
in the reader's mind. Drawing together theories from linguistics,
social cognition and literary stylistics, it is the first book-length
study to focus on:

* the role of language and characterisation
* characterisation in the dialogue of play texts

Containing numerous examples from Shakespeare's plays, the book also
considers a wide range of other genres, including, prose fiction,
verse, films, advertisements, jokes and newspapers. Language and
Characterisation is as practical as it is theoretical and equips
readers with analytical frameworks to reveal and explain both the
cognitive and the linguistic sides of characterisation. Clear and
detailed introductions are given to the theories, and useful
suggestions for further analysis are also made at the end of each part
of the book. The book will be essential reading for students and
researchers of language, literature and communication.
