Product Description

Review

‘In this exciting new textbook, Louise Mullany and Peter Stockwell have provided a fresh and imaginative set of alternatives for teaching and learning a huge amount about the English language. The book allows for creative and lateral approaches to developing an understanding of important linguistic concepts and, together with the thought-provoking activities, and accessible readings, guarantees there is something to stimulate every learner.' Janet Holmes, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

‘Introducing English Language is ambitious in its scope, providing a comprehensive, systematic introduction to a wide range of linguistic concepts as well as offering a panoramic perspective on the full range of issues that come into view when these concepts are used to ask questions about the English language.' Chris Christie, University of Loughborough, UK

‘This book is a welcome addition to the Routledge English Language Introductions series. It covers the wide area of English Language studies admirably and is written in a readable, lively but authoritative style that will appeal to all those starting their studies in this field. It contains a wealth of creative activities for students to get to grips with, and it does so in an engaging but always entertaining spirit. I warmly recommend the book as a refreshing and challenging starter to university-level studies in the English language.' Richard J. Watts, University of Berne, Switzerland

‘Definitely required for both students of English and English Linguistics. The writing is unusually clear, engaging, and carefully crafted. I have no doubt this textbook will become a bestseller in introductory courses for English Language and Linguistics. Its usefulness is enhanced by RELI’s user-friendly ‘flexi-texts’ that the students can use to choose their own path through the book.' Kensei Sugayama, Kyoto Prefectural University, Japan

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Contents clear but the book set out in a way in which it's not easily accessible. Also, not very clear and concise - it reads like prose. However, it does cover a wide variety of topics needed for studying the Language. I'd recommend 'The Study of Language' (Fourth edition) alongside this book.
