DESCRIPTION

This accessible satellite textbook in the Routledge Intertext series is unique in offering students hands-on practical experience of textual analysis focused on speech and writing. Written in a clear, user-friendly style, it combines practical activities with texts, accompanied by commentaries and suggestions for further study. It can be used individually or in conjunction with the series core textbook Working With Texts: A core introduction to language analysis. Aimed at A and AS Level and beginning undergraduate students, the Language of Speech and Writing: * Analyses the processes involved in writing and speaking * Highlights the differences between these two modes of communication * Explores written texts from recipes to legal language, spoken texts from telephone conversations to interviews and mixed-mode texts from email to adverts * Compares and contrasts spoken and written texts on the same theme
