Working with Texts is a well established textbook that introduces students to the main principles of language analysis, through contemporary text examples. Covering a wide range of language areas, the book uses an interactive, activity-based approach to support students' understanding of language structure and variety.

The third edition includes: new material on analyzing sound; an updated range of texts, including literary extracts, advertisements, newspaper articles, comic book strips, excerpts from popular comedy sketches, political speeches, telephone discourse, and internet chat; new extension work to support student-directed study; detailed suggestions after each unit for further reading within the Intertext series as a whole; and an updated list of URLs.
