Critical linguistics, inaugurated in 1979 with the publication of "Language as Ideology", has been widely influential and successful in documenting the detail of the connection of linguistic and social practices. Even now "Language as Ideology" provides the most detailed theoretical account of the operation of power and ideology in all aspects of text. This new edition presents, in a major new chapter, the advances made in the field of critical language study; and it gives an account of the authors' current position through a detailed analysis and theoretical discussion of a related set of texts. It poses their views on the necessary directions for critical language studies. [via]
