Produktbeschreibung

The 'story' of English is continually re-told and re-written, as more and more people use the language and have a part in shaping the way it develops.
Varieties of Modern English provides a critical introduction to the study of regional, social, gendered, context- and medium-related varieties of the language, and explores some of the debates concerning the role and impact of English in different parts of the world today.
Beginning by outlining the main types of variation in language, the book focuses on the link between language or dialect and the construction of both group and individual identities. Issues of identity are crucial to chapters on the roots of Modern English, on gender and English, on ethnicity and English and on English as an international language. As well as looking at a range of 'users' of the language, Davies also explores many of its 'uses' and modes, including the English of literary texts, advertising, newspaper reporting and commentary, political speeches, email and text messaging.
Written in a discursive, student-friendly style, the book also provides:

* A rich mix of illustrative material
* End-of-chapter Activities and related Comments at the end of the book
* Suggestions for further reading
Varieties of Modern English provides a thought-provoking overview of its subject and will be invaluable reading for students of English Language and Linguistics.
