MEDIA REVIEWS

`This publication provides a clear introduction to the field of language and technology and examines the way in which language is used and affected by the new technologies that are springing up around us. It will be particularly relevant to students studying A-level English language, as well as for students at all levels who are new to the field of sociolinguistics.'

Ruth Payne-Woolridge, University of Leeds, UK

`Language and Technology is an important introduction to the language practices of social media and Web 2.0. Providing a useful range of practical exercises and fascinating examples, it encourages independent thinking and enquiry. It is a lucid and entertaining read that simultaneously revels in the new language practices it analyses and subjects them to thought-provoking critical scrutiny.'

Shaun O' Toole, Itchen College, UK
