Abstract:
			
New Media Language brings leading media figures and scholars together
to debate the shifting relations between today's media and
contemporary language.

>From newspapers and television to email, the internet and text
messaging, there are ever increasing media conduits for the news. This
book investigates how developments in world media have affected, and
been affected by, language. Exploring a wide range of topics, from the
globalization of communication to the vocabulary of terrorism and the
language used in the wake of September 11, New Media Language looks at
the important and wide-ranging implications of these changes. From
Malcolm Gluck on wine writing to Naomi Baron on email, the authors
provide authoritative and engaging insights into the ways in which
language is changing, and in turn, changes us.

With a foreword by Simon Jenkins, New Media Language is essential
reading for anyone with an interest in today's complex and expanding
media.

right up to date. Offering new examples and suggestions for further
