Santello introduces the key linguistic processes involved in advertising discourse, and analyses the relationship between the linguistic repertoires of audiences and language use in advertising.

  • Showcases the most recent advancements in linguistic research as applied to the study of advertising and multilingualism, adopting an approach that focuses on linguistic resources;


  • Examines how advertisements make use of language(s), including Italian and the use of English as a foreign language, in order to attract attention and persuade their audience;


  • Familiarises readers with response mechanisms that bilinguals and multilinguals experience when exposed to advertising in different languages;


  • Demonstrates both qualitative and quantitative approaches to researching the intersections between language and marketing.
