The Routledge English Language Introductions series provides a one-stop resource for students of all areas of language and linguistic study. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, books in the series offer activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume.
Each book contains an introduction, development, exploration and extension section and includes real texts from a wide range of sources. An innovative 'two-dimensional' design enables easy and flexible use. A companion website will be launched to coincide with publication of the book.

' ... providing students of linguistics with everything they ever wanted to know about recent developments in linguistics. This may seem like a huge bill to fill, but in fact the two perspectives are skillfully and seamlessly interwoven.' - Belgian Journal of English Language and Literatures
