 Language and Creativity explores the creativity inherent in everyday
 spoken language.
 Creativity in language has conventionally been regarded as the
 preserve of institutionalized discourses such as canonical literature 
 and the discourse of advertising. In Language and Creativity Ronald
 Carter analyzes naturally-occurring spoken language to reveal that
 ordinary people in everyday speech contexts demonstrate creative
 capacities for sensitivity to their contexts. Illustrated with
 examples, and integrating current theory in both language and
 literature studies, the book underlines the importance of the
 creative choice, automaticity and repetition which is involved in
 informal communication.
