Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Talk, Work and Institutional Order. Discourse in Medical, Mediation and Management Settings
This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to talk and its role in creating workplace practice and relationships. Analytic tools drawn from ethnography, conversation analysis, interactional sociolinguistics and discourse analysis illuminate a range of workplace discourses from medical, mediation and management settings (e.g., hospital rounds, divorce mediation, enterprise bargaining).
