HAIMAN JOHN:

Talk Is Cheap Sarcasm, Alienation, and the Evolution of Language - new book

ISBN: 9780195354065

ID: 9780195354065

In this fascinating book, John Haiman argues that &apos cheap talk&apos , in which we don&apos t mean what we say (for instance, by the use of sarcasm and irony) is central to the way we now talk. He traces this radical change in our use of language to the emergence of a post-modern &apos divided self&apos who is hyper-conscious that what he or she is saying has been said before &apos cheap talk&apos thus allows us to distance ourselves from a social role with which we are uncomfortable. Haiman examines the full range of these pervasive distancing mechanisms, from clich&apos es and quotation marks to camp and parody. In the process he sheds important new light on the ways in which the English language is evolving in responses to our worldview.
