Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."


Book Information

   

Title: The Language of Work
Written By: Almut Koester
Series Title: Intertext
Description:

The Language of Work examines how language is used in business and the workplace, looking at a range of situations and data: from meetings to negotiations, official reports to emails between colleagues. The book explores representations of work in job adverts, TV programs and advertising and looks at the way people in business interact through small talk, politeness, customer care and management-employee relationships.

It is illustrated with lively examples taken from the real world and includes a full glossary and features a useful section on entering the world of work, including advice on CV writing, job interviews and developing 'transferable skills'.
