Summary

The Routledge English Language Introductions series provides a one-stop resource for students of all areas of language and linguistic study. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, books in the series offer activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume.
Each book contains an introduction, development, exploration and extension section and includes real texts from a wide range of sources. An innovative 'two-dimensional' design enables easy and flexible use. A companion website will be launched to coincide with publication of the book.

Language in Theory:

*provides a comprehensive introduction to the conceptual frameworks which underpin the study of language
*draws on a wide range of texts from recipes by Nigella Lawson to briefings by Donald Rumsfeld and writings by John Berger and Toni Morrison
*provides classic readings by the key names in the field from Derrida and Foucault to Lakoff and Johnson.

Written by experienced teachers and authors, this accessible textbook is an essential resource for all students of English language and literature as well as those with an interest in a variety of subjects from philosophy to cultural studies.
