Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Language and Media provides an accessible and comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art research in media linguistics. This handbook analyzes both language theory and practice, demonstrating the vital role of this research in understanding language use in society. With over thirty chapters contributed by leading academics from around the world, this handbook:

  • addresses issues of language use, form, structure, ideology, practice, and culture in the context of both traditional and new communication media;
  • investigates mediated language use in public spheres, organizations, and personal communication, including newspaper journalism, broadcasting, and social media;
  • examines the interplay of language and media from both linguistic and media perspectives, discussing auditory and visual media and graphic modes, as well as language and gender, multilingualism, and language change;
  • analyzes the advantages and shortcomings of current approaches within media linguistics research and outlines avenues for future research.

The Routledge Handbook of Language and Media is a must-have survey of this key field, and is essential reading for those interested in media linguistics.
