9780415484909: The Future of Language: The Routledge David Crystal Lectures

For the first time, The Future of Language brings together three of Professor David Crystal’s most popular lectures on the future of language. One of the world’s foremost experts on language and English language, and arguably the most accessible and entertaining writer and lecturer in this area, Crystal delivers these informative and highly enjoyable performance lectures exploring key contemporary language issues: 'The Future of Englishes', 'Language Death' and 'Internet Linguistics'.

An accompanying book with Crystal’s commentary on the lectures is included within the DVD package. This book supplements the lectures with a short overview of the main themes discussed, followed by a more detailed introduction to each topic and a synopsis of all the main points made in each lecture. The book concludes with Crystal’s reflections on how the three interrelated topics covered here will continue to interact and contribute to the evolution of language.

Special features include:

  • English subtitles
  • a cultural and usage commentary with timecodes so users can easily access points of interest
  • further reading and activities for the classroom – easy-to-follow tasks to get students engaging with language straight away
  • an index both for the DVD and the book so users can search for topics of interest.

This is an ideal resource for all university and A Level English Language and Linguistics departments and will be of interest to anyone involved in the study of language, especially those involved with teaching or learning English as a second language.

About the Author:

David Crystal received an OBE for services to the English language in 1995, and was made a Fellow of the British Academy (FBA) in 2000. He is patron of the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL) and the Association for Language Learning (ALL). Having published over 100 books, covering a diversity of language topics, his most recent publications include Txting: The Gr8 Db8 (2008) and Think on my Words: Exploring Shakespeare’s Language (2008). He has been a freelance writer, lecturer, and broadcaster since 1984 and continues his work with language from his home in Holyhead, North Wales.

Review:

'These three lectures are all fascinating, and brilliantly delivered. In fact, the biggest problem with this disk is that there are only three; I found myself wanting more. These lectures bristle with jumping-off points for discussion and thinking about practically any linguistic, historical, or social issue.' - John Lawler, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

'David Crystal's performance lectures are to linguistics as the Beatles are to rock -an entertaining mix of classic and innovation, a delight to watch and listen to.' - Susan Gayle Strauss, Penn State University
