Description:

This book provides an excellent, comprehensive resource for teaching degree
programmes in the fields of language, social interaction and human
communication.

Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends
readers' techniques of analysis through practical application.

Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in
context, and discusses their contribution to the field.

Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two
sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material.
This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and
encourages them to develop their own research responses.

Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and
deconstructed, with the reader's understanding strengthened by tasks and
follow-up questions.

Language and Interaction:

-introduces key concepts in language and social interaction

-describes how individuals develop skills in social interaction and shows
how people create identities through their use of language

-brings together essential readings in anthropology, discourse studies and
sociology

Written by an experienced teacher and researcher in the field, Language and
Interaction is an essential resource for students and researchers of
applied linguistics and communication studies.
