With wry humour and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of internet-age expression, Favilla makes a case for breaking the stuffy rules that have hitherto defined our relationship with language.

Is English changing? To what degree is it changing? Is this change good or bad? In answering these questions, Is English Changing? provides a lively and concise introduction to language change, refuting commonly held misconceptions about language evolution as we understand it. Showing that English, like all living languages, has historically changed and continues to change, this book: analyzes developments in the lexicon, the way words are spoken or written, and the way in which speakers and writers use words; offers a basic overview of the major subfields of linguistics, including phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics, all viewed through the prism of language change; discusses change over time with examples from Old English, Middle English, and Modern English; reinforces important concepts with examples from other languages, including Spanish, Japanese, and Czech; clearly defines key terms and includes advice on rules, usage, and style, as well as ample annotated further reading and activities throughout. Aimed at undergraduate students with little or no prior knowledge of linguistics, this book is essential reading for those studying this topic for the first time.

Al Jazeera In The Gulf And In The World

This book examines the deeper meaning of the advent of the Al Jazeera Media Network with regard to ongoing debates on global communication ethics, not only in the global public sphere but also in terms of its influence on new non-Western approaches to media ethics. Rather than simply calling for international perspectives on media ethic is a unique and significant addition to the literature on the topic. The book investigates whether Al Jazeera’s vision, mission, and operations are actually inspired by the New World Information Order debates over contra-flow and hegemony. Further, the book identifies ways of developing new non-Western approaches to global communication ethics, as it suggests injecting more cosmopolitanism in global news reporting and commentary.

Like the never-ending war on terror, the drugs war is a multi-billion-dollar industry that won’t go down without a fight. Pills, Powder, and Smoke explains why. The war on drugs has been official American policy since the 1970s, with the UK, Europe, and much of the world following suit. It is at best a failed policy, according to bestselling author Antony Loewenstein. Its direct results have included mass incarceration in the US, extreme violence in different parts of the world, the backing of dictatorships, and surging drug addiction globally. And now the Trump administration is unleashing diplomatic and military forces against any softening of the conflict. Pills, Powder, and Smoke investigates the individuals, officials, activists, victims, DEA agents, and traffickers caught up in this deadly war. Travelling through the UK, the US, Australia, Honduras, the Philippines, and Guinea-Bissau, Loewenstein uncovers the secrets of the drug war, why it’s so hard to end, and who is really profiting from it. In reporting on the frontlines across the globe — from the streets of London’s King’s Cross to the killing fields of Central America to major cocaine transit routes in West Africa — Loewenstein reveals how the war on drugs has become the most deadly war in modern times. Designed and inspired by Washington, its agenda has nothing to do with ending drug use or addiction, but is all about controlling markets, territories, and people. Instead, Loewenstein argues, the legalisation and regulation of all drugs would be a much more realistic and humane approach. The evidence presented in this book will persuade many readers that he’s right.

This is the updated 2017-18 Indian Country Style Guide for editors, writers, and journalists, with a guide to definitions and proper uses and briefings on American Indian law and news-gathering in Indian Country. A valuable resource for anyone writing about Indigenous America, and patterned after the AP Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. Fully reviewed guide containing: More than 100 entries Briefing on American Indian Law Briefing on News-gathering in Indian Country Directory of indigenous nations and leaders in Washington State Directory of Indian Country Media in Washington State The Indian Country Stylebook is patterned after the Associated Press Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. The fully reviewed guide contains more than 100 entries, with correct spellings, word usage, and legal references; a briefing on American Indian Law; a briefing on news-gathering in Indian Country; a directory of indigenous nations in Washington; and a directory of Indian country media in Washington. "Indian Country Stylebook for Editors, Reporters and Writers" is designed to help its users understand Indian Country and its customs, cultures, and laws. The guidebook evolved after a panel discussion, "Tribal Nations and the Media," at the 2013 Washington Newspaper Publishers Association convention in Olympia. Questions asked at that conference made it clear that such a guidebook would be helpful: Does the First Amendment apply to journalists covering stories on Indian reservations? What is "Indian country"? What authority do Tribal governments have on- and off-reservation? What are the proper terms for the articles of clothing someone wears at a gathering? The following individuals participated in the creation of the stylebook: Richard Walker, Mexican/Yaqui, an editor for Sound Publishing Co. and correspondent for Indian Country Today; Jackie Jacobs, Lumbee, media relations coordinator for the Quileute Tribe and principal of JTalentgroup, a Seattle-based Public Relations and Marketing agency; and Gabriel Galanda, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and Amber Penn-Roco, Chehalis Tribe, Galanda Broadman, PLLC. The cover, "All Rights Reserved," was designed by the artist Louie Gong, Nooksack. The first edition of this stylebook was published as an ebook in 2014.

"Do I capitalize north or not? When should church be capitalized and when should it be lowercased? What about earth? Or master's degree?"
