About this item
Slightly bent spine.
This series argues that language is "social Semiotic", which is critically involved in the process by which human beings communicate, build knowledge and information, and fashion experience, valued and attitudes. In short, language is a basic resource with which we organise and build our world and is thus a fundamental part of the education process. To educate is to develop language abilities of some kind; whatever the subject being taught and whatever the age group, language will be involved. With its emphasis on meaning and the direct relationship between text and context, systemic linguistics provides the perspective for each book in the series.
