'The Eu Is Not Them, But Us!': The First Person Plural and the Articulation of Collective Identities in European Political Discourse
This volume contributes to the latest trends in discourse studies by presenting a Hallidayan corpus-driven critical linguistic analysis. The results are tested statistically, which enhances their reliability as compared with most previous corpus-driven systemic functional analyses. The linguistic analysis is conducted on context-specific corpora built out of speeches delivered on the topic of European integration by key politicians of similar institutional functions in their respective countries, Finland, Hungary and the UK. The empirical findings offer insights into differences and similarities between articulations of collective identities in the political discourse on EU integration. The results indicate that the different (power) positions assigned in the enlargement negotiations were reflected in the language use of politicians. The findings also reveal shared European patterns of identification among speakers of different national backgrounds. What is more, these patterns reflect the limitations set on being European by the so called democratic deficit of the EU. This monograph can be of interest to researchers, postgraduate students and advanced undergraduates working in the fields of discourse analysis, applied linguistics, political science, sociology and European studies. EU institutions and national government agencies running projects connected to European integration may find this volume useful as well.

Neurogenic Communication Disorders: Life Stories and the Narrative Self
While there is currently considerable focus on psychosocial issues for persons with aphasia and their significant others, there has been little unifying work that attempts to bring diverse interdisciplinary perspectives together to understand the impact of aphasia on the social construction and mediation of self or identity. In this book, the authors explore the ideas of social construction of self and/or identity as they apply to treatments for aphasia, interventions for significant others, and other neurological disorders that affect adults — their premise being that different disorders have a profoundly different impact on one s perception of self and one’s ability to negotiate the social reconstruction of self in the context of a neurological disorder. They present theoretical grounding for using the concepts of self and the idea of a social and cultural tool kit that enables clients to interact with others and to define themselves in the context of those around them.
