Amazon.com description: Product Description: Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Exploring Language remains the market-leading language reader. Despite this thorough revision of the 9th edition, the original objective remains the same - to bring together exciting readings that explore the various ways language and American society are interconnected - while reflecting on the new and fascinating language issues that exist in our culture today. The provocative selections, organized around ten major language areas, demonstrate the subtle complexities and richness of English. They also invite students to debate current social and cultural issues that are inseparable from language.
