Textbooks

  1. Now Available: Language, Society and Power

    Language, Society and Power is the essential introductory text to studying language in a variety of social contexts.

    This book examines the ways language functions, how it influences thought and how it varies according to age, ethnicity, class and gender. It considers whether representations of people and their language matter, explores how identity is constructed and performed, and considers the creative potential of language in the media, politics and everyday talk.

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.

  2. Now Available: Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event

    Discourse Analysis beyond the Speech Event introduces a new approach to discourse analysis. In this innovative work, Wortham and Reyes argue that discourse analysts should look beyond fixed speech events and consider the development of discourses over time. Drawing on theories and methods from linguistic anthropology and related fields, this book is the first to present a systematic methodological approach to conducting discourse analysis of linked events, allowing researchers to understand not only individual events but also the patterns that emerge across them.

    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.
