Summary: The thematic focus on language fosters an appreciation of the richness, flexibility, and vitality of the English language. Ideal for the composition classroom, Language Awareness encourages students to use language more responsibly and effectively in speech and writing.

70 selections by well-known writers and language experts such as Deborah Tannen, Neil Postman, Louise Erdrich, George Orwell, William Lutz, Richard Lederer, S. I. and Alan R. Hayakawa, Paul ...show more Roberts, and Gloria Naylor present ideas that invite students to explore the many dimensions of language, culture, and communication.

Chapters covering tested areas of language study -- "Names and Naming," "Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Language," "Language and Cultures," "The Language of Persuasion: Advertising and Politics," for example -- focus on issues that are central to the study of language and culture.

Extensive writing guidance helps students understand the recursive steps of the writing process and how the process applies to their own writing. In addition to 4 new introductory chapters on writing, and the much-valued chapter "Writers on Writing," each selection in the text is accompanied by journal prompts, questions on style and content, and an abundance of writing suggestions and activities. ...show less
