Forbidden Words: Taboo and the Censoring of Language

Cambridge University Press (November 20, 2006) | ISBN: 0521525640 | PDF | 314 pages | 1,9 Mb

Many words and expressions are viewed as 'taboo', such as those used to describe sex, our bodies and their functions, and those used to insult other people. This book provides a fascinating insight into taboo language and its role in everyday life. It looks at the ways we use language to be polite or impolite, politically correct or offensive, depending on whether we are 'sweet-talking', 'straight-talking' or being deliberately rude. Using a range of colourful examples, it shows how we use language playfully and figuratively in order to swear, to insult, and also to be politically correct, and what our motivations are for doing so. It goes on to examine the differences between institutionalized censorship and the ways individuals censor their own language. Lively and revealing, Forbidden Words will fascinate anyone who is interested in how and why we use and avoid taboos in daily conversation.

Editorial Reviews
Product Description
In a time of great change and increasing demands on teachers, here is a reference book explaining key concepts, ideas and current requirements in the huge area of primary English. The encyclopedia aims to be comprehensive, user friendly and interesting. While the author has the needs of UK primary teachers and student teachers very much in mind, the intended audience stretches to anyone anywhere concerned about children's progress in English up to 11 years.

The encyclopaedia includes many short definitions - parts of speech, for example - and succinct explanations of current UK requirements. However, the author, who has worked with children and student teachers for many years, bears in mind the bigger shapes and purposes - how we can help children become confident speakers, thoughtful listeners, sensitive readers and successful writers. The project was inspired by a student teacher group who wanted a book that would be a friend throughout their primary English course and beyond.

The encyclopaedia includes an introduction identifying the heart of primary English and providing a unifying framework for the book; over 800 entries; fifteen extended entries on, for example, speaking and listening, reading, writing, drama, special needs and English, young learners speaking English as an additional language and assessment; up to date information and key issues; examples of children's work; and charts and diagrams.
