Product Description

Review

The discourse of tourism is a discourse of identity construction, promotion, contestation and acceptance. It is a discourse created through linguistic and visual texts and increasingly today, through the internet on a whole range of travel-related websites, including those of destination management organisations and a plethora of social networking sites. In this immensely informative and provocative text Rick Hallett and Judith Kaplan-Weinger take to task the role of the World Wide Web in mediating the construction of identities. Theirs is a timely and thought-provoking book which makes a major contribution to the task of making the meanings of these sites transparent through discourse analysis. The book is scholarly yet hugely readable and well illustrated; it readily communicates the authors command of their subject. --Professor Annette Pritchard, University of Wales Institute, Cardiff

About the Author

Richard W. Hallett is a Professor of linguistics at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL. He received his Ph.D. In linguistics from the University of South Carolina. In addition to the discourse of tourism, his research interests include second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, and World Englishes. Judith Kaplan-Weinger is Professor of linguistics at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, IL. She earned her PhD in linguistics from Georgetown University. Her teaching and research interests lie in, aside from language and tourism, the multi-modal discourse analysis of grief and mourning.
