Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321122216, Paperback)

Now in its tenth edition, this market–leading language reader continues to feature thought–provoking readings that explore the various interconnections between language and American society. For over 25 years, this engaging reader has challenged individuals to critically examine how language affects and constructs culture and how culture constructs and affects language. This tenth edition maintains the integrity of past editions, while reflecting the new and fascinating language issues that exist in today's culture. Provocative selections are organized around nine major language areas, and then broken into stimulating sub-themes like political correctness, hate speech, language and the presidency, and censorship on campus, inviting readers to debate current social and cultural issues that are inseparable from language. Individuals interested in studying how language affects and constructs culture and how culture constructs and affects language.
