The Plain English Guide
The Plain English GuideMillions of us are professional writers without even being aware of it. Everyday we write countless letters, memos, instructions, legal documents, and reports. And often this writing is criticized for being full of jargon, or obscure, or long-winded, or just not in "plain English." But what is plain English, and how does one write it? The Plain English Guide offers down-to-earth advice and twenty easy-to-follow guidelines covering plain words, sentence length, active and passive verbs, punctuation, planning, and good organization of points.

Ways of Being in Teaching: Conversations and Reflections
Ways of Being in Teaching: Conversations and ReflectionsAs teachers, we share experiences with one another. It is a way to make sense of our teaching lives and teaching selves. Ways of Being in Teaching is that kind of sharing; it is a scholarly conversation that will appeal to teachers who are tired of the tips and tricks, and want to talk more deeply about how to flourish in this profession. Most of us know ways to strengthen and sustain self, soul, heart, identity, and how these key touchstones also strengthen teaching. This book recognizes that who we are, where we are, and why, is as much a social process as a personal one. Attending to life purpose is a way of attending to teaching.

World English(es) and the Multilingual Turn: Frameworks of Complex Phenomena
World English(es) and the Multilingual Turn: Frameworks of Complex PhenomenaThe recent multilingual turn involves various different implicit and explicit language policies, urging pressure and resistance with regard to the spread of English and its dominant relationships with other national languages. As such, this book considers the social value of communication as the basis of multilingualism and of the evolution of language systems.
The data presented here show English as being in the middle of the double “listening” of cultural mediation and the imperfect “magnifying” glass of translation, with worldwide Standard English being but one of the many other related varieties which enjoy prestige on a large scale.
