Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: A Resource Book for Students
Written By: Rodney H. Jones
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415610001/
Series Title: Routledge English Language Introductions
Description:

"Routledge English Language Introductions" cover core areas of language
study and are one-stop resources for students.

Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible
overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses,
commentaries and key readings—all in the same volume. The innovative and
flexible ‘two dimensional’ stricture is built around four
sections—introduction, development, exploration and extension—which offer
self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these
sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.
Each book in the series has a companion website with extra resources for
teachers, lecturers and students.

Discourse Analysis:

-Provides an accessible introduction and comprehensive overview of the
major approaches and methodological tools used in discourse analysis

-Introduces both traditional perspectives on the analysis of texts and
spoken discourse as well as more recent approaches that address
technologically mediated and multimodal discourse.

-Incorporates practical examples using real data from conversational
interaction, ceremonial vows, dating adverts, social media such as
facebook, blogs and msn, films such as When Harry Met Sally, popular music
lyrics and newspaper articles on areas as diverse as international
political incidents and Lady Gaga.

-Includes key readings from leading scholars in the field, such as James
Paul Gee, Michael Halliday, Henry G. Widdowson, Dell Hymes, Harvey Sacks
and Ron Scollon

-Offers a wide range of activities, questions and points for further
discussion

-Is supported by a companion website featuring extra activities, additional
guidance, useful links and multimedia examples including sound files,
YouTube and videos.

This title will be essential reading for students undertaking research
within the areas of English Language, Linguistics and Applied Linguistics.
