The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: a core introduction to language analysis (second edition 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics, and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts. The Language of Science: Explores the way in which scientific language is used (and, at times, abused) by politicians, the media and ourselves. Demonstrates the interaction between linguistics and science. Is illustrated with a wide range of examples from the MMR vaccine to AIDs and the biological weapons debate, and includes a glossary as well as ideas for further reading. Looks at the role of 'names' and 'labels' in assigning levels of importance to scientific phenomenon. Examines the use of scientific language and the derogatory connotations it may denote as it is used amongst individuals.
