In this edition of our newsletter, we are thrilled to celebrate the election of Prof. John R. Rickford to the National Academy of Sciences! He is co-editor of African-American English; co-author of African American, Creole, and Other Vernacular Englishes in Education; and subject of The Routledge Companion to the Work of John R. Rickford.
We share some exciting news of our authors appearing on podcasts. We also remember and celebrate the late Judith Baxter as we publish the handbook she co-edited with Jo Angouri, on Language, Gender, and Sexuality.
We have a great batch of new books. Please browse our titles below, which include two new core course textbooks on grammar and on writing systems, and the revised fourth edition of a core textbook on intercultural communication. We are very pleased to publish new research handbooks focused on Cognitive Linguistics, and English Language Education in Bangladesh. David Block’s Language, Society and Political Economy series adds two major new titles this month, and we also publish cutting-edge volumes on linguistic discrimination in higher education, on pronouns, and on interpreters and war crimes.
