The first part of this book assesses how television presents viewers with information - contrasting the ‘official reality’ of news and current affairs programmes with the anarchic view of the world put out by such as Morecambe and Wise and the two Ronnies. It challenges the politics of programme schedules and takes care to consider the language used in programs designed for different purposes. The second, inspiring part contains accounts of three of the author's collaborative video projects which aimed to use the medium of video storytelling to access a different way of teaching. The third and most polemical part of the book explores more about education in relation to television and video. Originally published in 1981, it is a book about the way that television, through massive and constant reinforcement, made its own language the only language; and it presents the attempts – instructive, hilarious, occasionally quite touching – made by the author and students to discover other possible languages that television might use.

Today there is a reawakening interest in how language affects our lives. It comes with every threat to our safety and every promise of better times. It is a burning issue among minorities and a running debate between the attackers and defenders of our schools. Our deepest problems all are entangled with it: What shall be the official speech of emerging nations like Zambia and the Philippines, or even in certain areas of established ones like Belgium and Canada? What kind of English should be taught, or should there be no standard at all? How is government to make its regulations understandable? What are the verbal persuasions of television doing to our children? Which way does information flow, what are its biases, when does it inform and when conceal, and who benefits? Are the people who consider themselves experts in these matters as expert as they pretend to be? We feel adrift in a sea of words, and would welcome and a chart and a compass. Language – The Loaded Weapon offers a glimpse of what the recent study of language is beginning to tell us about these things. It explains in simple terms the essentials of linguistic form and meaning, and applies them to illuminate questions of correctness, truth, class and dialect, manipulation through advertising and propaganda, sexual and other discrimination, official obfuscation and the maintenance of power, and – most pervasive of all – language as the vital agent with which we build our worlds. Explaining language has been Dwight Bolinger’s life work, and as his invigorating new book amply shows he believes that what is true and important can also be made clear and pleasurable.

Das Buch behandelt den menschlichen Wortspeicher, das "mentale Lexikon," und damit die Frage, wie wir Worter lernen, verstehen, produzieren, speichern und finden. Im Mittelpunkt des Originals "Words in the Mind - An Introduction to the Mental Lexicon" (Blackwells: 2. Auflage 1994) steht die Betrachtung und Erforschung der englischen Sprache; die deutsche Fassung enthalt jedoch auch zahlreiche Beispiele aus dem Deutschen. Das Buch ist einfach und verstandlich geschrieben und gibt einen ausfuhrlichen Uberblick uber die Forschung zum mentalen Lexikon. Es richtet sich vor allem an Studierende der Linguistik und Psychologie, doch auch an Dozenten, Padagogen und interessierte Laien.
