Joseph Benjamin Archibald Afful. Address terms are acknowledged to be a key verbal behaviour among interlocutors in various social institutions. However, it is only recently that it has been explored in academic settings. Other definitions of address terms as feature in Afful (2006a), Oyetade (1995) and Keshavarz (2001), among others, seem to have a limitation by circumscribing address terms solely to oral, face-to-face interaction. Another view by Bonvillain (2000: 83) has it that address terms, also known as terms of address include several linguistic types and forms that can be used to name, refer to or address a participant in a communicative situation.

The book, first, shows that nine categories of address terms constitute the lexicon interlocutors in the selected communities use in their interactive encounters. Second, the differences in the use of these address terms were dictated by such variables as gender, formality, and age. Given the wave of globalization sweeping across the world, this work should enhance intercultural communication

This term has overtaken two other terms namely "discourse community" and "speech community" though they may not be markedly different from one another. The popularity of the term community of practice may stem from the much cited. A follow-up of the earlier study, Afful (2006) identifies four key address forms used by university students.

The term 'academic literacy' itself conjures all the multifaceted sets of complex skills that are required for a person to function effectively in various disciplinary communities in a university. Known in tertiary institutions in Ghana as Communicative Skills (CS), EAP has not witnessed any systematic evaluation as in similar programs elsewhere (. Kinkead & Harris, 1993; Lukmani, 1995; Hyland, 1997). This paper argues for a change in the CS curriculum at the University of Cape Coast (UCC).

Over the last three decades scholars in sociolinguistics have shown considerable interest in address terms in various contexts, with sub-Saharan Africa not featured much in these sociolinguistic studies. This book, therefore, presents a comprehensive description of the relationship between address terms on one hand and socio-cultural context on the other hand, using an ethnographic research approach consisting of semi-structured interviews, observation, and field notes. Three speech communities (a public university and two less urban communities) in Cape Coast, a former capital and a tourist hub in Ghana, constituted the research site. The book, first, shows that nine categories of address terms constitute the lexicon interlocutors in the selected communities use in their interactive encounters. Second, the differences in the use of these address terms were dictated by such variables as gender, formality, and age. Given the wave of globalization sweeping across the world, this work should enhance intercultural communication. The work also has implications for the scholarship on onosmatics.
