Abstract:

This book explores key areas of modern society in which language is
used to form power and social relations. These are presented in five
sections:

Language and the Media
Language and Organisations
Language and Gender
Language and Youth
Multilingualism, Identity and Ethnicity

With a unique combination of selected readings and student-centred
tasks in a single volume, the book covers contemporary issues in
language and power, ranging from the global to the interpersonal. Each
area - and each reading chosen to explore it - is substantially
contextualised and discussed through a detailed introduction and then
followed up with related activities.

Each section comprises:

*a substantial, specific introduction which draws students' attention
 to key themes and issues relevant to its topic;
*a set of four or five selected readings which encourages students to
 locate critically these issues in context;
*a task, or set of tasks, obliging students to undertake 'hands-on'
 linguistic analysis of data and engage in more sophisticated
 discussion of pertinent issues.
