Title: Language, Discourse and Social Psychology
Edited By: Ann Weatherall
Bernadette Watson
Cindy Gallois
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403995958
Series Title: Palgrave Advances
Description:

Language and communication are central features of social behaviour. So, it
is somewhat surprising that the social psychological study of language,
communication and discourse has a relatively short history. In this book a
leading group of language, discourse and social psychology scholars will
overview the history, theories and methods of the field. However, the main
focus is on current developments in the social psychology of language and
discourse, showcasing cutting edge empirical work.
