It has also been expanded to contain additional material on the integra ion of verbal and non-verbal features in communication,and how such systems work,especially in applied settings and social relationships.
With its strong reviews,the new Handbook of Language and Social Psychology provides rapid access to a social psychological perspective for linguists, anthropologists,sociologists, and other academics concerned with language.

- Expanded range of topics covered.
- Provides state-of-the-art reviews of many of the important theoretical and practical areas in which progress has recently been achieved.
Dal retro di copertina:
What makes a good argument?
How is language used to create social influence?
How social is computer-mediated communication?
This new, fully updated and revised The New Handbook of Language and Social Psychology reflects the increasingly diverse range of linguistic topics that social psychologists have investigated over the decade since the previous edition of this seminal work was published.
Whilst the basic organization of the text remains the same, explanatory frameworks are accorded greater prominence than before and persons are seen as agents of communicative interaction rather than as victims of external of forces. Processes and actions are highlighted, i.e. how people do what they do and how they manage the discourse. In the final section, several applied topics reflect our changing lifestyle: computer-mediated communication, mass media, and organizations.
The New Handbook of Language and Social Psychology is an essential source book for all psychologists concerned with language and how it functions in human communication. Those interested in interpersonal and intergroup social relations will find much relevance, as will practitioners and other professionals working in health and welfare, multilingual contexts, and organizations.
