9780415382748: An Introduction to Language and Society (Studies in Culture and Communication)

In this third edition of the bestselling classic textbook, Martin Montgomery explores the key connections between language and social life.

This third edition includes:

  • new sections on dialect levelling and estuary English; hip-hop and rapping as anti-language and ‘crossing’ between Creole, Panjabi and South Asian English
  • new material on the Gulf War and the 'War on Terror'
  • discussions on language in internet usage and new technologies
  • updated examples and references.

With detailed suggestions for further reading and practical work for each chapter, An Introduction to Language and Society is the ideal resource for students and teachers of Communication Studies and Language Studies.

About the Author:

Martin Montgomery is director of the Programme on Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde where he is also a member of the John Logie Baird Centre for film and television.

Review:

"This is an excellent, comprehensive examination of the field of language and
society...The writing is clear and concise; understandable for a novice student and
without unnecessary technical words. In addition, with the recently updated
information and examples in this edition (specifically hip-hop and rap language,
and material on the language of the 'war on terror') this could very well
provide new information to more advanced students. The author provides a fair
and balanced examination of many issues in the field of sociolinguistics."

--  Linguist List, June 2009

'... this book is very engaging, with fascinating in-depth examples.' - The Journal of Language and Society
