Summary

The rapid development of communications technology is transforming the manner in which people communicate across time and space. In English in a Postmodern World the contributors examine both the ways in which the English language has adapted to new media and the changing social relations of a global communications culture. Topics covered include:English as a visual language, the changing relationship between text and technology, the language of the Internet, the language of English news media and the global growth of English.
English in a Postmodern World is especially timely in light of the Internet and its effect upon human interaction. This book provides a provocative examination of English in the contemporary world, and will be of interest to all students of English, Media and Communication Studies.
