New Titles

  1. Social Communication Development and Disorders

    NEW  This new standout volume is the first to describe developmental areas associated with social competence and social communication, as well as provide evidence-based information on effective assessment and intervention for children who have problems with social communication and social interactions. 

  2. Unusual Productions in Phonology

    NEW    The universalist view that acquisition of phonology is guided by universal principles has been the dominant position for decades. More recently, an alternative view has brought into focus the relationship between developmental markedness and language-specific input frequencies. With entirely original chapters on non-ambient-like productions by typically and atypically developing children, and second language learners, Unusual Productions in Phonology delves deeply into these competing explanations to show that patterns observed do not uniquely lend themselves to one or the other explanations.

  1. Now Available: Translation and Linguistic Hybridity

    Translation and Linguistic Hybridity is now available to purchase and recommend to a librarian. This volume outlines a new approach to the study of linguistic hybridity and its translation in cross-cultural writing. By building on concepts from narratology, cognitive poetics, stylistics, and film studies, it explores how linguistic hybridity contributes to the reader’s construction of the textual agents’ world-view and how it can be exploited in order to encourage the reader to empathise with one world-view rather than another and, consequently, how translation shifts in linguistic hybridity can affect the world-view that the reader constructs.

  2. Now Available: Language and Masculinities

    Edited by Tommaso M. Milani, this volume showcases cutting-edge research in the linguistic and discursive study of masculinities, comprising the first significant edited collection on language and masculinities since Johnson and Meinhof’s 1997 volume. Overall, the chapters are linked together by a critical analytical perspective that seeks to understand the relationships between discourse, masculinities, and power.

    Jane Jackson's The Routledge Handbook of Language and Intercultural Communication is Essential!

    "The essays coalesce in a tour de force that embraces the multi-layered interactions involving language choice defined by psychological, economical, political, religious, and ethical factors. The volume is capably indexed and extended by a wealth of recommended readings for each essay. It fills gaps between national demarcations and serves as a bridge for educators, policymakers, and others interested in and/or working in the field. Summing Up: Essential." - CHOICE, March 2014

  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.
