Book Information


Title: The Language of Websites
Written By: Mark Boardman
Series Title: Intertext

The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: a core introduction to language analysis (second edition 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite' titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics, and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts.

*covers many different types of web-based interaction, from buying online and auction sites, to search engines, email links and chatrooms
