Graddol, David and Boyd-Barrett, Oliver
This volume is one of the four readers compiled as part of the course Language and Literacy (Code E825), which is one module of the (UK) Open University MA in Education programme. The collection of papers in this volume is the outcome of a collaboration between two editors: the first a linguist and the second a researcher in media studies. The papers reflect the growing convergence of the two disciplines in their treatment of the text. Analyses of film and television have for some time drawn on linguistics theory - particularly the structuralist model of language provided by Saussure. More recently, linguists have themselves developed and turned their attention to the kinds of text which pervade everyday life, and that has at last generated more principled accounts of the interaction between words and image, and more generally of the interplay and tension between verbal and non-verbal modes of meaning. This anthology is thus concerned with the complex ways in which texts communicate: at how the verbal and visual element of texts can be theorized within a linguistic framework; and at postmodern approaches which strive to "decanter" the text itself and explore the historical social contexts of their production and consumption. The collection should be of wide interest to students and researchers in linguistics, media studies, and communication. 282pp.
