This work explores the linguistic representation of related issues such as gender and national/regional identity and examines the way sport sells itself as an agent of social cohesion and as a means of selling other products. It looks in detail at the language of sports-talk including commentary and "new sportswriting". The book includes BBC, ITV and radio transcripts of such sporting events as Euro '96.
