Description : In this fourth edition of WRITING IN THE WORKS, the authors have maintained their dual focus on writing as both an academic and practical tool. At the same time, they have updated the content and the spirit of the book for the contemporary writing environment. Students learn to write for the digital world—where visual and verbal messages are inseparable—and do so by exploring serious ideas that will engage a real-world audience. Throughout the book, and in three new chapters, the authors emphasize the skills of synthesizing, defining, and evaluating—skills central to the development of good academic writing and good real-world writing. Students are encouraged to take chances, think big thoughts, and practice skills which will prepare them to ride the global communications wave as more confident, capable writers. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2016 MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition.

Description : WRITING IN THE WORKS (WITW) uses a real-world writing approach to intrigue and inspire students, showing them how to produce good writing (written work that people in the world at large would want to read) in a range of genres. The heart of the book is its 11 Assignment chapters, each covering a different real-world genre such as application essay, news article, editorial, proposal, public service message, and film review. WITW engages students and motivates them with its sophisticated visuals, timely readings, and obvious relevance and connection to the world beyond the university. Throughout, the authors treat students as serious writers, capable of writing for an actual audience beyond that of a composition instructor. Students write as if they will submit what they write for publication--or actually to submit what they write for publication. This real-world writing approach raises the stakes for students. They take the tasks more seriously when the assignments do not seem contrived and artificial and when this possibility of publication is in play. In fulfilling the real-world task, they learn genre conventions, audience, purpose, research, critical thinking, and style--skills directly transferable to the students' college writing and to the writing they will do for work and community.

Description : This book deals chronologically with the history of writing in Japan, a subject which spans a period of 2,000 years, beginning with the transmission of writing from China in about the first or second century AD, and concluding with the use of written Japanese with computers. Topics dealt with include the adoption of Chinese writing and its subsequent adaptation in Japan, forms of writing employed in works such as the "Kojiki" and "Man'yoshu," development of the "kana" syllabaries, evolution of mixed character-"kana" orthography, historical "kana" usage, the rise of literacy during the Edo period, and the main changes that have taken place in written Japanese in the modern period (ca. 1868 onwards). This is the first full-length work in a European language to provide the Western reader with an overall account of the subject concerned, based on extensive examination of both primary and secondary materials.

Description : “Charming and erudite," from the author of Enlightenment Now, "The wit and insight and clarity he brings . . . is what makes this book such a gem.” —Time.com Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing—and why should we care? From the author of The Better Angels of Our Nature and Enlightenment Now. In this entertaining and eminently practical book, the cognitive scientist, dictionary consultant, and New York Times–bestselling author Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the twenty-first century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of the classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right. The Sense of Style is for writers of all kinds, and for readers who are interested in letters and literature and are curious about the ways in which the sciences of mind can illuminate how language works at its best.
