Description:

Since its initial publication, English with an Accent has provoked debate and
controversy within classrooms through its in-depth scrutiny of American

discrimination based on accent functions to support and perpetuate social
structures and unequal power relations.

This second edition has been reorganized and revised to include:

-new dedicated chapters on Latino English and Asian American English
-discussion questions, further reading, and suggested classroom exercises,
-updated examples from the classroom, the judicial system, the media, and
corporate culture
-a discussion of the long-term implications of the Ebonics debate
-a brand-new companion website http://www.routledge.com/cw/lippi-green-
9780415559119/ with a glossary of key terms and links to audio, video, and
images relevant to the each chapter's content.

English with an Accent is essential reading for students with interests in
attitudes and discrimination towards language.
