The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A Core Introduction to Language Analysis (second edition 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite' titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics, and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts.

The Language of Work:

  • examines how language is used in business and the workplace, looking at a range of situations and data: from meetings to informal negotiations, promotional letters to emails

  • explores representations of work in advertising, career magazines and workplace talk

  • looks at the way people in business interact through small talk, politeness, customer care and management-employee relationships

  • is illustrated with lively examples taken from the real world and includes a full index of terms

  • features a useful section on entering the world of work, exploring job adverts and texts that give advice on CV writing and developing 'transferable skills'.
