Long description:
Combining perspectives from discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, the second edition of this popular textbook provides students with an up-to-date overview of the field of intercultural communication. Ingrid Piller explains communication in context using two main approaches. The first treats cultural identity, difference and similarity as discursive constructions. The second, informed by bilingualism studies, highlights the use and prestige of different languages and language varieties as well as the varying access that speakers have to them.

<i>Praise for the first edition</i><p>The volume is extremely well-suited to the requirements of students and teachers in undergraduate and postgraduate modular study programmes. Where this book really impresses, though, is in the refreshingly bold clarity of the author's voice, which lends an energy and dynamism to the content that cannot fail to engage and enthuse the reader... Reading this book is like listening to an excellent teacher. It is full of anecdotes, each one providing insightful illustration of a point. It is wide-ranging and well-informed, but wears its erudition lightly. It is passionate and, in the best sense, opinionated. It is just the book to enthuse, enlighten and educate.<p>
