How language is used in institutions and how institutions generate language is a key concern of both sociolinguistics and social theory. This readable and comprehensive introduction to language and power in institutions combines theoretical reflection with a strong analytical focus. Covering a range of institutional discourses and settings, each chapter in Language and Power closely examines institutional discourse practices and provides detailed steps to the critical analysis of institutional discourse both linguistic and multimodal.

This book is a long overdue contribution to the analysis of the way that institutions have the power to shape our thinking and understanding of the world and to construct identities.

Key Features:
*This book contains fascinating examples from a variety of institutional contexts, including academia, prison, media and the military
*It brings together insights from (multimodal) critical discourse analysis, social theory, media studies and corpus analysis
*It is essential reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates doing sociolinguistics, media studies, communication and cultural studies

About the Author:

Tommaso M. Milani is Associate Professor of Linguistics at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Review:

"Students of CDA with an interest in multimodal analysis will find this book specially useful. Its broad treatment of discourse to include all aspects of semiotic activity, from the use of photos in news stories to the visual design of war monuments, provides concrete case studies that help introduce key concepts in the study of language and power." (Adam Hodges, Department of Linguistics, University of Colorado, USA)

"Language and Power offers an innovative and intriguing blend of socio-historical criticism and textual analysis. Applying critical discourse analysis to a range of discourse types the authors display its potential to the full with a series of thought-provoking and illuminating readings. All serious students of institutional discourse will want to engage with this book." (Dr Martin Montgomery, Department of English Studies, University of Strathclyde, UK)
