This chapter uses a mobilities research approach to explore practices of urban living and discourse. Through descriptions of multiple (im)mobilities of people, objects, information, ideas, and linguistic, textual, embodied, material and visual communicative practices in a range of settings we trace continuities and transformations. The investigation moves across different scales of mobilities – from inside taxis to benches, to the mobility of places and the networked mobilities of digitally augmented communications and discourse to highlight how an analytical orientation towards (im)mobilties and mobile methods can contribute to the study of language and urban space and how, vice-versa, a focus on discursive urbanisms can deepen and broaden our understanding of (im)mobilities.
