More About the Author

Andrew is a mac-using erstwhile incipient accountant viola player who, if lucky, occasionally gets to play bridge and golf. He spends most of his life studying CA and the socio-pragmatics of inter-action, too much money on books, way too much time on Facebook, and nowhere near enough with Sally, Ben and Joe. With Aileen Bloomer and Patrick Griffiths, he co-authored Introducing Language in Use: a Coursebook and co-edited Language in Use: a Reader. He has been an executive member of the Linguistic Politeness Research Group since 2000. Invariably quite cheerful, his favourite words are minimum and outwith.

Product Description

Review

'This is an exceptionally rich textbook, providing expert but friendly introductions to a wide range of fields of language study, up-to-date examples, opportunities to debate and analyze language, a glossary and extensive further reading.'  Tim Parke,  University of Hertfordshire, UK

' ... accessible and well structured. Fittingly, Introducing Language in Use provides a wealth of "real" language examples and guides the student through engaging activities around these. The companion website presents follow-up language activities in an interesting way for both lecturers and students.'  Marnie Holborow, Dublin City University, Ireland

'This is a well-written textbook that gives a comprehensive overview of language study in a refreshing manner. It is useful not only for first-timers in linguistics but also for professional linguists looking for a quick update on current linguistic work done outside their area of expertise." Olga Thomason, University of Georgia, USA

This book was recommended by the university for the course I'm taking on inter cultural and languages studies with translation. Covers all the course content and is a great point of reference with many exercises to help you practice your understanding of each chapter. Great book and good price!
