-coverage of both local and global varieties of the English language in a range
of media and discourses, including news, advertising, text messaging, rap,
pop and street art

-an expansive anthology representing genres and discourses from early elegy
and novel to contemporary performance, flash fiction, including writers as
diverse as Aphra Behn, Emily Dickinson, J.M. Coetzee, Angela Carter,
Russell Hoban, Adrienne Rich and Arundhati Roy
