Second edition

Combining discourse analytic and sociolinguistic perspectives, this introduction provides students with a comprehensive, up-to-date and critical overview of the field of intercultural communication.

Ingrid Piller explains communication in context using two main approaches.The first treats cultural identity, difference and similarity as discursive constructions. The second, informed by bilingualism studies, highlights the use and prestige of different languages and language varieties as well as the varying access that speakers have to them.

Linguistics students will find this book a useful tool for studying language and globalization as well as applied linguistics.

Key features include

* Case studies from around the world

*Learning objectives, key points, exercises and suggestions for further reading in each chapter

*Reader-friendly, accessible style
