Language Awareness has long recognized the power of language and helped students understand and use that power critically and carefully as they make rhetorical choices about their own academic writing. The text provides extensive support for writing, while its relevant and engaging readings grouped into topics—such as community, discrimination, conflict, and gender—explore the pervasive influence of language on our lives. “Language in Action” activities connect the everyday and the academic by examining current texts and visuals to enhance students’ understanding of the readings. This thriving book has now been revised with input from reviewers across the country to include fresh new readings and updated instruction that invites students into the conversation about the power of language.

Language Awareness collects contemporary and classic readings about language that not only make students more aware of its uses and more capable of analyzing its effects, but also help them to deploy language more effectively in their own writing.

- Engaging students with the power of language in everyday life.

Chosen particularly for their insight and appeal to students, the 70 readings -- by well-known writers and language experts -- encourage students to think carefully about the many dimensions of language, culture, and communication, and to use their own language more responsibly and effectively in speech and in writing.- 4 full chapters on writing. Language Awareness offers more writing coverage than any other reader of its kind, and this edition includes four new chapters. Along with three student papers, these 70 pages on the essentials of college writing introduce students to the writing process and cover the types of writing most often assigned to first year college students: writing from experience, writing from reading, and writing from research (with MLA style documentation).- Documents for analysis and writing after every essay and every chapter. Called Language in Action, the documents that appear after every single essay include advertisements, screen-shots of Web pages, cartoons, corporate documents, poems, magazine quizzes, humorous excerpts, and other real-life uses of public language.

Language Awareness was the first composition reader to use the theme of language to heighten students awareness of the power of words -- and to help them use language more effectively themselves. Thirty years later, language readers are still the most successful kind of single-theme reader, and Language Awareness remains a best-seller in its market. Authors and editors of a wide range of highly successful composition texts, Eschholz and Rosa have continued to keep Language Awareness viable with a combination of class-tested and fresh selections in every edition and a proven ability to stay abreast of important trends in language study and culture. The ninth edition retains many of its classic readings and themes, but also introduces many exciting new selections that highlight cultural diversity in America and current arguments about language. Students using Language Awareness will discover that the study of language yields fresh perspectives on aspects of our culture ranging from internet technology, to politics and propaganda, to the language of advertising.
