Book Description

Immediately and universally relevant, language is the ideal theme to explore in a composition course. Language Awareness collects contemporary and classic readings about language that not only make students more aware of its uses and more capable of analyzing its effects, but also help them to deploy language more effectively in their own writing. New coverage in the eleventh edition provides even more advice on critical reading and working with sources, while a new organization focuses each short chapter on a single, cohesive theme. In addition, insightful "Language in Action" activities help students connect what they learn about language to what they observe in their daily lives.
