Summary: By helping your students grow more aware of the complex and manipulative nature of language, the authors of About Language encourage them to use language more responsibly in their own writing. More than 70 reading selections cover a broad range of issues, from popular to scholarly, including such newsworthy topics as cultural diversity, censorship, and gender. As always, strong support is provided by an opening chapter on the writing process; annotated table of contents; chapt ...show moreer introductions; selection headnotes, study questions and writing assignments; end-of-chapter writing assignments and research activities; and a glossary of language and rhetorical terms.

  • A chapter on technology and language brings students up to date in this rapidly changing area.
  • A convenient appendix on writing and documenting sources provides an accessible reference tool.
  • Motivating commentaries preceding each selection encourage personal journal writing and introspection.
