The Language of Money: Proverbs and Practices

    Through a detailed examination of proverbs related to money, this book
    offers a comprehensive critique of the prevailing everyday ideologies and
    discourses on money and paves the way towards establishing a new set of
    proverbs more conducive to financial equality and human well-being. The
    volume explores a variety of contexts to demonstrate the different aspects
    of the money system and the linguistic and social structures embedded
    within them, including gambling, get rich self-help books and new forms of
    currency. Unpacking this complex relationship between people, money and
    language in contemporary society, this book is an ideal resource for students
    and scholars in language and communication, sociolinguistics, rhetoric,
    sociology and media studies.
