Mooney, Annabelle & Evans, Betsy. Language, Society & Power. 6th edition.  London: Routledge.

Language, Society and Power is an introductory text to studying language in a variety of social contexts.

This book examines the ways language functions, how it influences thought and how it varies according to age, ethnicity, class and gender. It considers whether representations of people and their language matter, explores how identity is constructed and performed, and considers the creative potential of language in the media, politics and everyday talk.

Language, Society and Power is suggested for students of English language and linguistics, media, communication, cultural studies, sociology and psychology.
