Reviews

The editors of the book, Marcus Callies and Magnus Levin, have assembled a fascinating collection of work addressing an intersection of language and context that is of itself a growing area of interest for linguists. * Human Kinetics * [The book] offers innovative empirical studies that use new corpus resources to showcase the structural-linguistic and discourse aspects of a wide range of sports (e.g. football, cycling, motor racing), genres (e.g. live commentary, post-match reports, legal texts) and contexts of use (e.g. sports media, in-team communication). Considering the pioneering investigations involved in each chapter, the volume is especially impressive in its exploratory nature and rich implications for future research. * LINGUIST * An innovative, multifaceted collection going beyond current trends: studying English in comparison with other languages, investigating football and various other sports, studying metaphors, phraseology and many other aspects, analysing not only match reports and live text commentaries, but also a series of internet genres just emerging, with new variants of multimodality and language mixing - rich, profound, and inspiring! * Eva Lavric, Professor of Romance Linguistics, Innsbruck University, Austria * This comprehensive volume is among the first to focus on the language of sports, covering a wide range of topics from discussions in race car cockpits to online fan commentaries, which are analysed from equally diverse linguistic perspectives. A highly recommended read for anyone interested in the cultural, social and linguistic aspects of sports. * Tuomo Hiippala, Assistant Professor of English Language and Digital Humanities, University of Helsinki, Finland * This is a most welcome addition to the burgeoning collection of linguistic research on mediated sports discourse. The editors have to be congratulated for preparing a fascinating book that will prove to be indispensable to scholars and students in linguistics, media studies and communication, as well as to anybody else interested in sports, language and communication. * Jan Chovanec, Associate Professor of English Linguistics, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic *
