Format: Paperback
Specifically aimed at A-level English language students, this text is also suitable for use when preparing GCSE students for the new AQA controlled assessment in Spoken Language. Highly detailed and intelligently laid-out, the text contains sections on speech and writing, signs and sounds, and written and spoken discourse in context. With a wealth of transcripts, newspaper articles, cartoons and other texts suitable for analysis, this is the definitive work on this subject in terms of teaching A-level English language.

The book took a while to come, and unlike the description said, there are numerous amount of annotations within the book. This might not be the best when actually using the book as I won't have space for my own annotations.
Although, it was in a good condition, and for £3 it is very hard to complain.
I'd probably recommend the book, but tell them to only loosely believe the descriptions given.

Described as nearly-new but arrived very well-worn. However, very informative book for anyone studying English language or linguistics. It's great for explaining aspects of English Grammar in a very user-friendly way.
