Description

Bringing together a collection of 78 articles that examine language from many different perspectives, this selection focuses on language as a social form, demonstrating how it is an indispensable component of the world and how we interpret it. Organized thematically, the text addresses many topics, including the acquisition of language, the rhetoric of advertising, the language of politics, language between the sexes, and language across cultures. It also discusses areas such as the bodily basis of language, communication across species, and the language of cyberspace. The text offers aids for writing instruction, including an opening chapter on writing and revising, a rhetorical table of contents, and a glossary, as well as introductory notes, journal writing prompts, and analytical exercises for each selection.show more
