This market-leading language reader features thought-provoking readings that explore the various interconnections between language and American society. For more than 25 years, this engaging reader has challenged students to critically examine how language affects and constructs culture and how culture constructs and affects language. This eleventh edition maintains the integrity of past editions while reflecting the new and fascinating language issues that exist in today's culture.

Provocative selections are organized around eight major topics, and then broken into stimulating sub-themes like the connections between gender and language differences, hate speech, the language of war, and censorship on campus, inviting students to debate current social and cultural issues that are inseparable from language. Some chapters feature case studies with tightly focused readings on a particular issue or event. For example, the case study in Chapter 4 focuses on the language and rhetoric of war and the one in Chapter 8 focuses on spoken language.

These new readings provide a fascinating new perspective on the intersections of politics and language. In an era when students often turn to satirists and comedians for their news, we've reinstated the popular chapter on humor, Chapter 6. The organization has been streamlined for more in-depth exploration of specific, timely themes within each chapter's broader topic. Adding to a diverse assortment of genres, several historical pieces and great speeches that have influenced our culture and society have been added to this edition.
