Abstract:

"Communicating in English: Talk, Text, Technology" looks at how people use
spoken and written English to communicate in their everyday lives.

Exploring the complex relationship between communication, technology and
the English language, this book offers the reader practical insights into the
analysis of speech and writing. A wide range of examples is provided, ranging
from text messages and domestic quarrels to the works of Shakespeare and
the words of Martin Luther King.

This book takes a fresh look at established topics such as rhetoric, language
acquisition, and professional communication, as well as covering exciting
new fields such as everyday creativity, digital media, and the history of the
book. Key theoretical concepts are introduced in an accessible manner, and
the reader is given an in-depth understanding of English-language
communication in its social and historical contexts.

Drawing on the latest research and on the Open University's experience of
producing accessible and innovative texts, this book:

-explains basic concepts and assumes no previous study of English studies,
communication studies or linguistics

-features a range of source material and commissioned readings to
supplement chapters

-includes contributions from leading experts in their fields, including Naomi
Baron, Deborah Cameron, Guy Cook, Janet Holmes and Almut Koester

-has a truly international scope, encompassing examples and case studies
from Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia

-is illustrated in full color and includes a comprehensive index.

"Communicating in English: Talk, Text, Technology" is essential reading for
all students of English language studies or communication studies.
