Abstract:

'Ingrid Piller's book will be seen as a landmark in a 'second wave' of
studies on intercultural communication. Solidly grounded in discourse
analysis and sociolinguistics, clearly and accessibly written and
compellingly argued, it revives a field not always well served by its
scholars, and we are now at last in a position to see intercultural
communication for what it is: a historically situated and politically
sensitive complex of communication modes, analysis of which requires
attention to the smallest details as well as to the biggest things in the
world - globalization processes.' - Jan Blommaert, Tilburg University

Combining discourse analytic and sociolinguistic perspectives, this
introduction provides students with a comprehensive, up-to-date and
critical overview of the field of intercultural communication.

Ingrid Piller explains communication in context using two main approaches.
The first treats cultural identity, difference and similarity as discursive
constructions. The second, informed by bilingualism studies, highlights the
use and prestige of different languages and language varieties as well as
the varying access that speakers have to them.

Linguistics students will find this book a useful tool for studying
language and globalization as well as applied linguistics.

Key features include:
*Case studies from around the world
*Learning objectives, key points, exercises and suggestions for further
reading in each chapter
*Reader-friendly, accessible style

Ingrid Piller is Professor of Applied Linguistics at Macquarie University,
Sydney, Australia. She has published widely on the sociolinguistics of
language learning, multilingualism and intercultural communication and
blogs about her research at www.languageonthemove.org.
