I bought an earlier edition of this work, when still a student at the university. This edition is even better, with its updates and new information.

It is no good thinking of Engliah as a lingua franca you can use anywhere if you are not prepared for its variants. Then you cannot understand or be understood. This book gives you insight of a theoretical nature you can also put to work in practical terms.

It is very thorough. I particularly like the distinctions it makes for English even close to home. You sail off the big island and the Channel may have some surprises for you.

Summing up, I would recommend this book to students and practitioners alike. Scholarly, yet practical!
