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."

Description:

English in Medicine is a course for doctors, medical students and other
medical professionals who need to communicate with patients and medical
colleagues. The course is at an intermediate level and does not require
specialist knowledge on the part of the teacher. Each of the seven units
focuses on one area of doctor-patient communication, from history taking
and examination to diagnosis and treatment. The course develops all four
skills through a wide variety of activities. The third edition is now in
full colour and has been updated to take account of developments in
medicine and the impact of new information technology.
