Textbooks

  1. Published today: Language and Linguistic Diversity in the US

    Language and Linguistic Diversity in the US is a fresh and unique take on a widely taught topic. This highly engaging textbook presents a linguistic view of the history, society, and culture of the United States. It discusses the many languages and forms of language that have been used in the US – including standard and nonstandard forms of English, creoles, Native American languages, and immigrant languages from across the globe – and shows how this distribution and diversity of languages has helped shape and define America as well as an American identity. The volume introduces the basic concepts of sociolinguistics and the politics of language through cohesive, up-to-date and accessible coverage of such key topics as dialectal development and the role of English as the majority language, controversies concerning language use in society, languages other than English used in the US, and the policies that have directly or indirectly influenced language use.

  2. Now Available: Theories in Second Language Acquisition: An Introduction, 2nd Edition

    The second edition of Theories in Second Language Acquisition seeks to build on the strengths of the first edition by surveying the major theories currently used in second language acquisition research. This volume is an ideal introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students in SLA and language teaching. Each chapter focuses on a single theory, written by a leading scholar in the field in an easy-to-follow style – a basic foundational description of the theory, relevant data or research models used with this theory, common misunderstandings, and a sample study from the field to show the theory in practice. This text is designed to provide a consistent and coherent presentation for those new to the field who seek basic understanding of theories that underlie contemporary SLA research.

  2. Now Available: Discourse and Democracy

    In this new study, Farrelly gives a critical examination of democracy as it is conceived and practiced in contemporary advanced liberal nations. The received wisdom on democracy is probelmatized through a close analysis of discourse in combination with critical theories of democracy and of the State. The central theme of the book is the paradox of pervasive reference to democracy as a legitimation of political action by liberal governments versus the converse weakening of actual democratic practice within the liberal world.

  2. Renowned Author David Block on Political Economy

    Political economy has become a key reference discipline for many Applied Linguists in recent years. And the ways in which we define and employ it in applied linguistics research are diverse as we try to make sense of the current economic crisis. David Block, whose various works explore political economic issues, gave Routledge an exclusive interview. Professor Block touches upon the definition of political economy, the necessity of continuously evaluating this topic in applied linguistics and the social sciences in general, and how his upcoming series Language, Society and Political Economy can deepen our understanding of the subject, especially as it relates to language in society issues.
