Description

Using a re-reading of Saussure and Bahktin, the author demonstrates the ways in which language has been used to construct social and cultural identity in Britain and Ireland. For example, he examines the ways in whcih language was employed to construct a bourgeois public sphere in 18th-century England, and he reveals how language is still being used in contemporary Ireland to articulate national and political aspirations. By bringing together linguistic and critical theory, this study provides an agenda for language study; one which acknowledges the fact that writing about history has always been determined by the historical context, and by issues of race, class and gender.
