Starting from the point of view that language is essentially a social phenomenon, this book explores the interconnectedness of linguistic and social matters in a wide vareity of texts ranging from casual conversations to extracts from coursebooks. Kress demonstrates that, rather than being
powerless in the face of a monolithic language system, the individual language user is constantly engaged in the processes of linguistic reconstitution and change.
