FM radio is not a recent phenomenon in our lives, but this book points out the linguistic exploitation that is induced by the Radio Jockey (RJ) in the FM radio channels of Bangladesh. Language, as a discourse, has its own momentum and dynamics. It changes and causes change. This book locates the diversity of language used in FM radio and its effect on the most significant listener – the youth. The language of FM radio appears as a hybrid language, and apart from mixing of words it is distinct in its intonation pattern. This book evaluates the stances of listeners regarding the new trendy language of RJs and how often this pattern of language creates impact on listeners. It explores the purposes of code-mixing and code-switching in “FM radio language” and also evaluates its consequences. It would let us know whether the language of FM radio is taken by the listeners as beneficiary or not. Anyone interested in sociolinguistics especially in code-mixing and code-switching would find this book useful. This book should communicate with someone who does not have the theoretical exposure to the essentials of linguistics. This feature makes this book a worthy read.
