The Language and Politics of Exclusion: Others in Discourse (Communication and Human Values)
Stephen Harold Riggins (Contributor)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
This volume brings together articles that apply critical discourse analysis to texts and speech which contribute to the marginalizaton of minority groups. Studying both the fine detail of language use and the political values implicated by word choice, the contributors demonstrate the usefulness of linguistic perspectives in advancing the study of prejudice and social inequality. Journalists and academics can contribute unwittingly to the marginalization and denigration of others. A better understanding of the ways in which discourses operate might contribute to the more efficient self-monitoring on the part of any writer. This book's in-depth look into the issue helps lead the way.
