Описание

No matter if highly educated or barely literate, a native speaker or a foreign language learner, everyone has, at one point or another, produced a language gaffe. Some of those gaffes pass unnoticed, others are shrugged off as unimportant. Still others may stay to haunt one for years – especially if one is a politician, a celebrity, a TV personality, a lecturer…

This book debates different ways of analyzing language gaffes. It offers a contrastive analysis of the language gaffes produced by US President Donald Trump and US President George W. Bush.
