Show synopsis Since its publication over ten years ago English with an Accent has provoked debate and controversy within classrooms through its scrutiny of American attitudes towards language. Drawing on examples from a range of contexts that include the judicial courts and media, Rosina Lippi-Green discusses the ways in which discrimination based on accent functions to support and perpetuate social structures and unequal power relations. The second edition of English with an Accent is reorganised and revised to include: * new dedicated chapters on Latino English and Asian American English * a section in each chapter with discussion questions, annotated further reading, key concepts, and suggested classroom exercises * updated the examples drawn from a variety of contexts: the classroom, the court, the media and corporate culture * a discussion of the long-term implications of the Ebonics debate Additionally, the book is now accompanied by a Companion Website, featuring: * links to audio, video, and other resources relevant to the each chapter's content * interactive flash cards of key terms in the book * an instructor's guide to using the book and website * further suggested discussion questions and activity prompts. English with an Accent is essential reading for students with interests in attitudes and discrimination towards language.
