Book Launch Invite by Dr Gift Mheta (co-Author) and (Writing Centre Coordinator) at the Durban University of Technology
The Durban University of Technology’s Library Book Club and Writing Centre invite you to a book launch.
The launch of the book “Language, Society and Communication” by Drs Zannie Bock and Gift Mheta will take place on Thursday, 07 August 2014 at the Botanic Gardens Hall.
The book aims to introduce students to key, established linguistic concepts and theories and link these to our rich linguistic heritage as well as contemporary issues in society and media, including new social media. Through an analysis of how semiotic (both linguistic and non-linguistic) choices and forms work together to construct meaning, this textbook explores how language is intricately bound up with issues of power, status and identity. It also introduces an analytical vocabulary to describe language as a system to demonstrate the relevance of this kind of analysis to real world issues such as language acquisition.
