'This volume proves that it is still possible to make a difference in a world flooded by introductory textbooks – giving the English language in all its fascinating richness centre stage! Chapters covering everything one would expect and much beyond – expertly selected, artfully arranged, carefully argued and amply illustrated. Written in an accessible style that makes for an attractive read, this will be a most useful companion for any student, undergraduate or graduate, of English and the linguistics of English!' Bernd Kortmann, University of Freiburg, Germany
'This is a rare beast – a comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date survey of English Language and Linguistics that will provide students and researchers alike with a rich context for their work.' – Michael Hoey, University of Liverpool, UK
