English with an Accent: Language, Ideology, and Discrimination in the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scrutinizing American attitudes toward language, "English With an Accent" exposes the way in which language is used to maintain and perpetuate social structures and unequal power relations. Rosina Lippi-Green explores language prescription and discrimination in a variety of contexts in today's society. She examines situations from the judicial system, the media and corporate America, including such instances as court cases that attempt to exclude persons with accents from teaching young children. In the process she reveals how the media works to promote linguistic stereotyping, how employers discriminate on the basis of language use and how the judicial system uses language to protect the status quo.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

In this bestselling textbook, Rosina Lippi-Green scrutinizes American attitudes towards language. Using examples drawn from a variety of contexts: the classroom, the court, the media and corporate culture, she exposes the way in which discrimination based on accent functions to support and perpetuate social structures and unequal power relations. English with an Accent:
  • focuses on language variation linked to geography and social identity
  • looks at how the media and the entertainment industry work to promote linguistic stereotyping
  • examines how employers discriminate on the basis of accent
  • reveals how the judicial system protects the status quo and reinforces language subordination

This fascinating and highly readable book forces us to acknowledge the ways in which language is used to discriminate.
