    schema:description "Globalization is a complex combination of economic, social, and cultural shifts largely carried out through language: from texts and communicative exchanges to the orders of meaning that construct contemporary social lives. The Handbook of Language and Globalization meets the challenges that globalization poses to sociolinguistic theory by investigating key issues relating to language use and development."@en ;
    schema:description ""This Handbook provides a fascinating exposition of the complex, multidimensional nature of globalization as it pertains to the world's languages. Coupland has marshalled authors at the forefront of their fields who offer a diversity of approaches and do not flinch from disputes and challenging questions. I suspect that this book will transform the discourse on globalization within lingusitics and will impel a reconsideration of whether linguistic diversity is inevitably impacted by global processes."

    schema:description "Comprising 30 chapters written by leading international scholars, the volume brings together new research in the field and maps out new areas for future research. Contributors cover such topics as tourism, language teaching, computer-mediated social networking, terrorism, and religion, among many others. The volume also illustrates critical approaches to discourse, social semiotics, linguistic anthropology, and cultural studies. The result is a vibrant interdisciplinary mix of articles that represents some of the most compelling contemporary sociolinguistic research. Venturing beyond the constraints of the typical speech community, the Handbook takes steps toward re-theorizing language in the world today. --Book Jacket."@en ;
