9780199947485: Language: A Reader for Writers

Read. Write. Oxford.

Language: A Reader for Writers focuses on the central and complex topic of language, exploring the reality of our multilingual world and the complexities of writing in a multilingual college classroom. It takes on key issues including the nature of language; the effects of globalization; endangered languages; multilingualism and language diversity; language, politics, and power; language and writing; language correctness; and the ways in which language shapes identity. The articles embody a range of experiences, ideas, and strategies-from scientific research and powerful arguments to poetic reflection and playful celebration.

Developed for the freshman composition course, Language: A Reader for Writers includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and scientific reading selections, providing students with the rhetorical knowledge and compositional skills required to participate effectively in discussions about language, learning, and the writing process.

Language: A Reader for Writers is part of a series of brief single-topic readers from Oxford University Press designed for today's college writing courses. Each reader in this series approaches a topic of contemporary conversation from multiple perspectives.
