Metalanguage : social and ideological perspectives by Cardiff Roundtable in Sociolinguistics( )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ability of language to refer to itself, or its metalinguistic function, is explored in this volume through the study of explicit comments on speakers' own and other people's talk, reported speech, and stylisation. Metalanguage is theorized as an indispensable aspect of communication and as such an integral part of any sociolinguistic analysis. The book overviews the theory of metalanguage and presents original case studies of metalanguage in lay and professional (including linguists') discourses, the media, parliamentary debates, education, and retail shopping."--Jacket

The power of silence : social and pragmatic perspectives by Adam Jaworski( Book )

This book provides a theoretical account of a variety of different communicative aspects of silence and explores new ways of studying socially-motivated language. A research overview shows the influence of related work in the fields of media studies, politics, gender studies, aesthetics and literature. The author argues that in theoretically pragmatic terms, silence can be accounted for by the same principles as those of speech.

Elite discourse : the rhetorics of status, privilege and power( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elite Discourse examines how language and communication - or just discourse - defines, mediates and legitimizes class privilege. It does so from the perspective of those people and places who often stand to gain most from inequality. Collectively, chapters consider language and communication that is elitist in its appeal to distinction, excellence and superiority; they also describe the ways in which various groups and institutions lay claim to `eliteness' as a way to position themselves (or to be positioned by others) as elite or non-elite. As such, chapters are concerned as much with discourse about elite status as they are with the discourse of elites - those groups commonly defined by their material wealth, political control, or demographic rarity. Ultimately, Elite Discourse views `elite' as something we do, rather than something we necessarily have or are. Indeed, elite status and eliteness point us to the rhetorical strategies by which many people differentiate themselves and by which they access symbolic-material resources for shoring up their status, privilege and power. This book was originally published as a special issue of Social Semiotics
