Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Language and Creativity provides an introduction to and survey of a wide range of perspectives on the relationship between language and creativity. Defining this complex and multifaceted field, this book introduces a conceptual framework through which the various definitions of language and creativity can be explored.

Divided into four parts, it covers:

  • different aspects of language and creativity, including dialogue, metaphor and humour
  • literary creativity, including narrative and poetry
  • multimodal and multimedia creativity, in areas such as music, graffiti and the internet
  • creativity in language teaching and learning.

With over 30 chapters written by a group of leading academics from around the world, The Routledge Handbook of Language and Creativity will serve as an important reference for students and scholars in the fields of English language studies, applied linguistics, education, and communication studies.
