Abstract:

Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study
and are one-stop resources for students.

Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible
overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses,
commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and
flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections -
introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer
self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these
sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

Language and Media:

- is a comprehensive introduction to how language interacts with media

- investigates the forms of language found in media discourse; how patterns
in such language use contribute to recognizable media genres and styles;
and broader social themes and consequences that arise from media language

- uses a wide variety of real texts from the media that include: newspapers
covering events such as the Asian tsunami, speeches, blogs, emails,
advertizements and interview transcripts from television talk shows
including Oprah

- provides classic readings by the key names in the discipline including
David Crystal, Norman Fairclough, David Graddol, Allan Bell and Theo van
Leeuwen

- is accompanied by a supporting website

Witten by two experienced teachers and authors, this accessible textbook is
an essential resource for all students of English language and linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

Written In: English (eng )
