Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis
Edited By: Carey Jewitt
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415667777/
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

Multimodality is an innovative approach to representation, communication
and interaction which looks beyond language to investigate the multitude of
ways we communicate: through images, sound and music to gestures, body
posture and the use of space.

"The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis" is the first comprehensive
"research tool kit" for multimodal analysis, with 22 chapters written by
leading figures in the field on a wide range of theoretical and
methodological issues. It clarifies terms and concepts, synthesizes the key
literature with in-depth exploration and illustrative analysis, and tackles
challenging methodological issues.

The Handbook includes chapters on key factors for Multimodality such as
technology, culture, notions of identity and macro issues such as literacy
policy. The handbook takes a broad look at multimodality and engages with
how a variety of other theoretical approaches have looked at multimodal
communication and representation, including visual studies, anthropology,
conversation analysis, socio-cultural theory, socio-linguistics and new
literacy studies.

Detailed multimodal analysis case studies are also included, along with an
extensive glossary of key terms, to support those new to multimodality and
allow those already engaged in multimodal research to explore the
fundamentals further.

"The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis" is essential reading for
undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers involved in
the study of multimodal communication
