Abstract:
			
English-Only Europe? explores the role of languages in the process of
European integration.

Languages are central to the development of an integrated Europe. The
way in which the European Union deals with multilingualism has serious
implications for both individual member countries and international
relations.

In this book, Robert Phillipson considers whether the contemporary
expansion of English represents a serious threat to other European
languages. After exploring the implications of current policies,
Phillipson argues the case for more active language policies to
safeguard a multilingual Europe. Drawing on examples of countries with
explicit language policies such as Canada and South Africa, the book
sets out Phillipson's vision of an inclusive language policy for
Europe, and describes how it can be attained.

Abstract:
			
This is a completely updated and expanded second edition of Language,
Society and Power. Lively and accessible, it looks at the ways in
which language functions, how it influences thought and how it varies
according to age, ethnicity, class and gender. How can a language
reflect the status of children and older people? Do men and women talk
differently? How can our use of language mark our ethnic identity? The
book also looks at language use in politics and the media and examines
how language affects and constructs our identities, exploring notions
of correctness and attitudes towards language use.

This second edition has been fully updated to include recent
developments in theory and research and offers the following features:

*new, relevant and engaging examples drawn from everyday life:
conversation transcripts, novels including Ian McEwan's Atonement,
television and the internet

*new activities designed to give students a real understanding of the
area

*an international perspective with examples from the world's press,
including The Washington Post, the Daily Mail and the New Zealand
Listener

*updated and expanded further reading sections and glossary.

Language Society and Power remains an essential introductory text for
students of English language and linguistics, and will also be of use
to students of media, communication, cultural studies, sociology and
psychology.
