The Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict presents a range of linguistic approaches as a means for examining the nature of communication related to conflict. Divided into four sections, the handbook critically examines text, interaction, languages and applications of linguistics in situations of conflict. Spanning 30 chapters by a variety of international scholars, this Handbook:

  • includes real-life case studies of conflict and covers conflicts from a wide range of geographical locations at every scale of involvement (from the personal to the international), of every timespan (from the fleeting to the decades-long) and of varying levels of intensity (from the barely articulated to the overtly hostile)
  • sets out the textual and interactional ways in which conflict is engendered and in which people and groups of people can be set against each other
  • considers what linguistic research has brought, and can bring, to the universal aim of minimising the negative effects of outbreaks of conflict wherever and whenever they occur.

The Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict is an essential reference book for students and researchers of language and communication, linguistics, peace studies, international relations and conflict studies.

Index
"The Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict is the outcome of an innovative project started by the editors a decade ago. They have gradually extended the scope of their inquiry integrating the finest research in this new discipline. The book is a comprehensive overview of the field and a must-read publication for everyone who wants to know more about how language is used in conflict situations."


Distinguished Professor Istvan Kecskes, State University of New York, USA


"The editors are to be commended for having put together a rich international range of excellent contributions on the thorny issue of social conflict - particularly with respect to what is happening on a daily basis in the social media - one that centrally involves language as `languaging' in social interaction rather than language as a semiotic system."


Professor Emeritus Richard Watts, University of Bern, Switzerland

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
