The authors of About Language encourage students to use language more responsibly in their own writing. More than 70 reading selections cover a broad range of issues, including cultural diversity, censorship, and gender. Strong support is provided by an opening chapter on the writing process; annotated table of contents; chapter introductions; selection headnotes, study questions and writing assignments; end-of-chapter writing assignments and research activities; and a glossary of language and rhetorical terms.
