THE COLLOQUIAL SERIES

The Colloquials series includes guides to over fifty of the World's
languages-from popular favorites to less common gems. Designed so
that you can use cassettes, books or cds separately or in combination,
these user-friendly courses enable you to acquire a solid command of
the everyday spoken and written forms of your chosen language. They
are the ideal resource for the aspiring language learner, whether in
the classroom or on their own.

Each Colloquial includes:
clear, concise grammar
a useful vocabulary
a glossary
a pronunciation guide
exercises for regular practice
an extensive reference section

The Colloquials offer the widest available range of language- learning
book and cassette packages. They help you navigate the intricacies of
your language, and the flexible format means you can continue learning
while jogging, driving to work or relaxing at home.

These self-pacing courses are created by experienced teachers, and are
ideal for both beginners and for learners who need to "brush up" rusty
skills.

The Routledge Colloquials courses are available in a variety of
formats to best suit your individual needs: Book/Cassette Packs
include a full-length paperback book plus one or two 60-minute
cassettes recorded by native speakers. Books or Cassettes are sold
separately for those who need to improve their reading or listening
skills only. Available for selected languages, two-CD packs include
additional recordings to supplement the book and help learners to
improve pronunciation and listening skills.

Subject: Discourse: The Discourse of Advertising Second Edition by Guy Cook


Guy Cook, University of Reading, THE DISCOURSE OF ADVERTISING,
Second Edition

The second-edition of The Discourse of Advertising has been
substantially revised and includes new material from advertisements
for Philips, Wonderbra, Wrigleys and others. Cook argues that
advertisements are always engaged in a complex interaction with the
texts around them-music and images-and the people who make and
experience them.
