Routledge A Level English Guides equip students with the skills they need to explore, evaluate, and enjoy English. Books in the series are built around the various skills specified in the assessment objectives (AOs) for all AS and A2 Level English courses. Focusing on the AOs most relevant to their topic, the books help students to develop their knowledge and abilities through analysis of lively texts and contemporary data. Each book in the series covers a different example of language and literary study, and offers accessible explanations, examples, exercises, a glossary of key terms, and suggested answers. Unlike other series designed for A Level English students, this series has been written by senior examiners in the light of how the new specifications have actually worked out in practice. Language and Social Contexts: explores how social contexts affect language use, enabling students to see how context has a direct effect on how texts are written, read and understood. Key Features: covers the key skills and topics, including the importance of social contexts, transcripts and live data, representation, power, gender and regional dialect analyses a wide variety of spoken and written texts, from conversations and text messages to wedding invitations, road signs, police warnings and advertisements offers a step-by-step guide to approaching texts and data and suggestions for structuring a response can be used as both a course text and a revision tool.
