Aesthetic design here clearly involves cultivation and simulation of particular communicative styles (and the specific selections are adjusted to the overall ethos of the particular restaurant) for the values, forms of self and social relations which they are metaphors for. Language here clusters with curtains, wallpaper and table decorations. The aesthetic design of language is I suggest an increasingly prominent feature of contemporary orders of discourse, in line with what Featherstone (1991) calls the 'aestheticization of everyday life', corresponding to the acquisition by commodities in late capitalism of increasingly dominant 'sign value', in Baudrillard's terminology (Baudrillard, 1988).

Change, Language and Society at the End of the Twentieth Century Papers in this sub-theme examined the ways in which social change brings about changes in language and language use.

Six papers dealing with this sub-theme have been selected for this volume. Fairclough's plenary identifies eight aspects of social change in the late twentieth century and then investigates the ways in which social change is constituted by changing discourse practices.
