9780190629496: Style, Mediation, and Change: Sociolinguistic Perspectives on Talking Media (Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics)

Technologically mediated talk is organized around familiar styles-styles of person, relationship and genre. But media also consistently remake and re-style these familiar patterns. This book brings together original research on media styling in different national contexts and languages, written by authors at the forefront of sociolinguistic research on mediated talk. It highlights and theorizes how creative acts of mediated styling can promote social and sociolinguistic change. The globalized world is already massively mediatized-what we know about language, people and society is necessarily shaped through our engagement with media. But talking media are caught up in wider currents of rapid change too. Creative innovations in media styling can heighten reflexive awareness, but they can also unsettle existing understandings of language-society relations. In reporting new investigations by expert researchers this book gives an original and timely account of how style, media and change need to be integrated further to advance the discipline of sociolinguistics.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When talk circulates through technological media - through television or radio and through the activities they support, like the dissemination of news, product advertising or entertainment - it takes on distinctive characteristics, functions and styles. The talking media have developed their own ways of styling individuals (often as celebrities of different types, but also as ordinary people ), and ways of styling relationships (such as constructing informality or trust or authority). Media also style their own ways of communicating (how to read the news, how to conduct interviews, how to entertain or educate others, and so on). Media invest heavily in style and styling, drawing on semiotic modes well beyond speech itself. Style therefore needs to be theorised carefully in sociolinguistics and neighbouring disciplines. Episodes and fragments of mediated styles commonly take on new lives when they are re-circulated via interactive new media platforms. Style therefore points to both stability, where ways of speaking and ways of being have become culturally familiar, and to instability, in the talking media s persistent dynamic reworking of stylistic norms. This book explores a wide range of normative structures and creative media processes of this sort, in many different national contexts and in different languages. The globalised world is already massively mediatised - what we know about language, people and society is necessarily shaped through our engagement with media. But talking media are caught up in wider currents of rapid change too. Creative innovations in media styling can heighten our reflexive awareness, but they can also unsettle our existing understandings of language-society relations. In reporting new investigations by expert researchers, situated in relation to relevant theory, the book gives an original and timely account of how style, media and change need to be integrated further to advance the discipline of sociolinguistics.
