  2. Now Available: Metonymy and Language

    Metonymy and Language presents a new theory of language and communication in which the central focus is on the concept of metonymy, the recognition of partial matches and overlaps. Through the use of original data sets and rigorous primary research, Denroche characterizes metonymy as key to understanding why language is so ‘fit for purpose’ and how it achieves such great subtlety and flexibility.

  6. Now Available: Discourse and Democracy

    In this new study, Farrelly gives a critical examination of democracy as it is conceived and practiced in contemporary advanced liberal nations. The received wisdom on democracy is probelmatized through a close analysis of discourse in combination with critical theories of democracy and of the State. The central theme of the book is the paradox of pervasive reference to democracy as a legitimation of political action by liberal governments versus the converse weakening of actual democratic practice within the liberal world.

  8. Now Available: Researching Identity and Interculturality

    "This volume makes a valuable contribution to developing research in interculturality by going beyond description of research method to engage critically with the methodical consequences of the complex constructs of identity, culture and interculturality that confront any researcher in the field. The volume works through important new possibilities for developing accounts of identity in intercultural contexts that will enrich scholarship in the field both conceptually and methodologically."Tony Liddicoat, Professor in Applied Linguistics, School of Communication, International Studies and Languages, University of South Australia 

    Researching Identity and Interculturality focuses on advances in research methodology in an interdisciplinary field framed by discourses of identity and interculturality. It includes a range of qualitative studies: studies of interaction, narrative studies, conversation analysis, ethnographic studies, postcolonial studies and critical discourse studies, and emphasizes the role of discourse and power in all studies of identity and interculturality.
