Using English from Conversation to Canon

Cover
Neil Mercer, Janet Maybin
Psychology Press, 1996 - 326 Seiten
English is used the world over by people at work, play and in artistic endeavours. In this book, the second in the series of four, writers from a range of academic disciplines examine a wide variety of texts and discourses, from everyday conversation to the literary canon.
Topics include:
* everyday conversation
* English in the workplace
* English and Rhetoric
* literacy practices in English
* English and popular culture
* what makes English into art? * language and literature
Highly interdisciplinary in approach, it provides a coherent introduction to the ways in which language is shaped and used in practice. This book will be an invaluable text for all students of Language, Communication Studies, Literacy and Literature.
