Summary

The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A Core Introduction to Language Analysis (second edition, 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of ‘satellite’ titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics, and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts.

The Language of War:

* explores how military discourse has entered mainstream language use

* focuses on how language is used to construct opposing sides during armed conflict

* analyzes the interaction between verbal and visual language in military propaganda

* compares and contrasts media coverage of war with the language of official reports

* draws on an eclectic range of military and non-military texts from a wide variety of sources.
