Title: Language in the Media
Subtitle: Representations, Identities, Ideologies
Edited By: Sally Johnson
Astrid Ensslin
URL: www.continuumbooks.com
Series Title: Advances in Sociolinguistics
Description:

This book examines the ways in which the media represents language-related
issues, but also how the media's use of language is central to the
construction of what people think language is, could or ought to be like.
The chapters examine issues of identity, gender, youth, citizenship,
politics and ideology across a range of media, including television, radio,
newspapers, magazines and the internet. The result is a multilingual survey
of the construction of language in and by the media that will be essential
reading for students and researchers of sociolinguistics or language and
communication.

'This is not just another book on media language. In a sophisticated,
original and sharply critical way, it shows us how the media lens gives
language distinctive forms and values. Sociolinguistics comes of age when
it analyses the mediation of language - a truly contemporary phenomenon.
That is what this book achieves, comprehensively and brilliantly.'
-Professor Nikolas Coupland, Centre for Language and Communication
