A mind-expanding, deeply humane tour of language(s) - and those who speak, study and invent them - by the best-selling author of Born on a Blue Day and Thinking in Numbers. Is vocabulary destiny? Why do clocks ´talk´ to the Nahua people of Mexico? Will AI researchers ever produce true human-machine dialogue? In this mesmerizing collection of essays, Daniel Tammet answers these and many other questions about the intricacy and profound power of language. In Every Word Is a Bird We Teach to Sing, Tammet goes back in time to explore the numeric language of his autistic childhood; in Iceland he learns why the name Blær became a court case; in Canada he meets one of the world´s most accomplished lip readers. He chats with chatbots, contrives an ´e´-less essay on lipograms, studies the grammar of the telephone, contemplates the significance of disappearing dialects and corresponds with native Esperanto speakers - in their mother tongue. A joyous romp through the world of words, letters, stories and meanings, Every Word Is a Bird We Teach to Sing explores the way communication shapes reality. From the art of translation to the lyricism of sign language, these essays display the stunning range of Tammet´s literary and polyglot talents. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Tammet.

Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says ´´knows all of [Anonymous´s] deepest, darkest secrets.´´ Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption. She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her inside-outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book. The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary tricksters - such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabu - emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little-understood facets of culture in the Internet age. 1.

Nora Ephron meets Bridget Jones´s Diary in Guardian columnist Stella Grey´s heartrendingly honest, witty memoir about her online odyssey to find real love in a virtual world. Singers may croon about love being lovelier the second time around, but it can also be far more complicated. When Stella Grey´s husband leaves her for another woman, she fears she´ll be unhappy and alone for the rest of her life. But daytime vodka drinking and ice cream are only short-term consolations. Realizing that she needs to take her future into her own hands, Stella dives into the world of online dating. What follow are 693 days of hilarious, depressing, and baffling encounters that unfold both in person and online. Stella quickly discovers that the more perfect a man appears on her screen, the warier she should be. It´s a game of chance, with some players perfectly willing to lie to get what they want, whether that´s a lifetime of love or a very brief encounter. Amid flirty emails, Skype chats, and awkward small talk over glasses of bad wine (which may or may not lead to awkward sex), Stella struggles to remain optimistic. To succeed, does she have to redefine the kind of man she´s looking for - or change the kind of woman she is? Funny, raw, and heartwarming, this book is a brutally honest account of the world of online dating - a world that so many of us are a part of, no matter our age - drawn from Stella´s hugely popular Guardian column, Mid-life Ex-Wife (and expanded with new material) about her search for a second chance at love. 1.

For successful political leaders, public speaking is only half the battle. A good politician must also be a competent performer. Whether facing critical questions in an interview, posturing in a leaders debate, or conversing on a daytime chat show, success is reliant upon a candidates ability to dramatically but authentically impart a strong individual identity. In this innovative analysis, Geoffrey Craig looks at the interrogative exchanges between politicians and journalists. The power struggles and evasions in these encounters often leave the public exasperated, but it is the politicians negotiation of these struggles that determines success. Drawing on analyses of the language and performances of leaders such as Barack Obama and David Cameron, Craig examines the particular kinds of interactions that occur across political interviews, debates, conferences, and talk shows. The political games that take place between politicians and journalists, he argues, constitute the true theatre of politics. Engaging and insightful, Performing Politics will appeal to students and scholars of journalism, politics, linguistics, and media studies, as well as anyone concerned about the quality of contemporary political communication. Geoffrey Craig is Professor of Communication Studies and Head of Research in the School of Communication Studies at Auckland University of Technology (AUT)
