Routledge English Language Introductionscover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students.
Assuming no prior knowledge, these books offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections - introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.
Grammar and Vocabulary:
- covers the core areas of the subject: words and sentences, word classes, word structure, slots and fillers, sentence patterns, clause and phrase, grammar rules, and vocabularies
- draws on a wide range of real texts from newspaper articles, adverts, poems, and websites
- provides classic readings by key names in the discipline, such as Halliday, Quirk, Ayto, and Trudgill.
This is an accessible and user-friendly textbook for all students of English language and linguistics.
