Title: Confusing Discourse
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=361527
Description:

Do you usually think you are being understood? Do you think you really
understand others? Have you, as many have, become so accustomed to
confusion that you don't recognize it except when it is extreme? This book
identifies and addresses some of the sources of confusion in discourse and
offers ways of diminishing it.

Confusing Discourse is intended primarily for graduate students of language
in linguistics, foreign languages, and in communication departments.
However it may also be found useful to advanced undergraduates focusing on
confusing discourse, understood as part of the phenomenon of discourse in
general. This book may also be recommended to anyone trying to find out how
language works and how its use and abuse relates to palpable everyday life
problems.
