Teaching Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1542691&cjsku=1542691...
The field of communication was founded, in part, because of a need to make people better communicators. That meant teaching them how to communicate more effectively, whether it be in public settings or in private. Most of that teaching has happened within the classroom and many professionals have spent their lives instructing others on various aspects of communication. Inside this second edition, the editors have assembled a fully comprehensive and contemporary discussion of topics and issues concerning the teaching of communication. The chapters contained herein--contributed by key voices throughout the communication discipline--address conceptual as well as practical issues related to communication instruction. The contents of this new edition reflect the dramatic changes that have occurred in communication education since the publication of the first edition in 1990. This book focuses initially on the goals of communication education, then delves into the preparation of specific communication courses. It includes assistance for instructors in organizing instructional content and discusses the use of instructional strategies and tools, as well as offering ideas on evaluating the processes and products of instruction. The volume also covers unique teaching assignments that may be encountered, from the basic course to continuing education, and addresses 2-year college teaching, directing forensic programs, distance education, and consulting. It concludes with important professional issues faced by both new and experienced communication instructors, including ethics and political issues within classrooms and departments. This volume is a necessity for anyone starting out a career as a communication instructor. Veteran educators--who know that learning to teach is a continual growth experience--will find useful and invaluable information within the book's pages. Whatever background and level of experience, all communication educators will find this new edition to be an essential resource for their work.

SMS Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1715700&cjsku=1715700...
Given the extensive use of LOL ( Laughing Out Loud ), MDR ( Mort De Rire ) and PTDR ( PéTé De Rire ) in French texting and the inclusion of lol in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2011 and in Le Petit Robert in 2013, this paper aims to study the functioning of these three initialisms. Considered mainly as interjections, I hypothesize that lol , mdr , and ptdr could work syntactically (through their non-integration in the syntactic clause and position) and semantically (through their semantic opacity and procedural meaning) as discourse markers. In order to show this discourse marker use, this exploratory study was carried out using a prototypical methodology characterized by an inclusive and gradual approach. Based on syntactic and semantic analysis, a discourse marker ranking was performed, and this resulted in a contextual analysis (co-occurrences, moods and moves). This inclusive and gradual approach allows for doubt and lack of knowledge of the context in the analysis process. More broadly, this work also throws light on texting as a spontaneous computer-mediated communication type with writing constraints imposed by the communication medium and the situation.

Interpersonal Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1838944&cjsku=1838944...
Interpersonal Communication emphasizes the significance of reciprocal influence processes in face-to-face interactions. This book examines the various aspects of human interaction. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the techniques that salesmen use to obtain compliance from customers. This text then examines certain situations of deliberate interpersonal manipulation, which reveals that internalized components of personal identity and self-esteem are more vulnerable to face-to-face communication. Other chapters consider the distinction between two basically different functions of human communications, namely, the functions of representation and of presentation. This book discusses as well the forms of social address that provides interesting examples of how the presentational function of communication expresses itself by means of a linguistic medium. The final chapter deals with the fundamental assumptions on which one's investigation depends. This book is a valuable resource for psychologists and social psychologists. Readers interested in the study of sociolinguistics will also find this book useful.

Theorizing Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=241518&cjsku=241518...
This book offers the first detailed intellectual history of communication study, from its beginnings in late nineteenth-century critiques of corporate capitalism and the burgeoning American wireline communications industry, to contemporary information theory and poststructuralist accounts of communicative activity. Schiller identifies a problematic split between manual and intellectual labor that outlasts each of the field's major conceptual departures, and from this vital perspective builds a rigorous critical survey of work aiming to understand the nexus of media, ideology, and information in a society. Looking closely at the thought of John Dewey, C. Wright Mills, Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Daniel Bell, and others, Schiller carefully maps the transformation of ideas about communication and culture as issues of corporate power, mass persuasion, cultural imperialism, and information expansion succeed one another in prominence. Bringing his analysis of communication theory into the present, Schiller concludes by limning a unitary model of society's cultural/informational production, one that broadens the concept of "labor" to include all forms of human self-activity. Powerful, challenging, and original, Theorizing Communication: A History offers a brilliantly constructed overview of the history of communication study, and will interest scholars working in the field as well as those working in critical theory, cultural studies, and twentieth-century intellectual history.
