Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are one-stop resources for students.
Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series 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.
Written by an experienced teacher and author, this accessible textbook is an essential resource for all students of English Language and Linguistics.

Peter Stockwell is Senior Lecturer at the University of Nottingham. He is the author of Investigating English Language and co-editor of Contextualised Stylistics.Review:
These very readable texts are immensely enlightening. Their supremely logical organisation makes it easy to select a specific topic and to work with it in great depth. The practical activities and closely argued associated commentaries are highly recommended, being well designed and effective aids to full understanding of points raised. The judicious selection of texts in the final section provides excellent support for taking the practical work forward..
–Clive Grey, Edge Hill College of Higher Education, UK
The Routledge English Language Introductions series is a first-rate set of textbooks for students beginning the study of linguistics. The contributions have been meticulously planned, clearly structured, and written in an eminently accessible style to enable teachers to structure their courses lucidly with ample opportunities for student home study. To coin a phrase: Highly recommendable!'.
–Richard Watts, University of Berne, Switzerland
This textbook is enormously enabling. Not only does it comprehensively provide the basic theory and method at the right level, but beginners have the means and the models so that they can get their hands dirty with real data and real problems in doing Sociolinguistics.
–William Downes, University of East Anglia
This innovatively designed series of coursebooks is not only an excellent starting place for beginners, but it's also a useful pitstop for instructors and more advanced learners. Each book renders an impressive range of theoretical perspectives both accessible and interesting, with key concepts and central issues clearly presented and rooted in contemporary data and analyses..
–Crispin Thurlow, Cardiff University, UK
Stockwell's text can be recommended on a number of levels, namely, the clarity of its organization, the accessibility of its content and the balance it acheives in its four sections. These four sections (explanation, studies done by undergraduate peers, illustrative language data and key articles by significant researchers in the field) all lend it an air of refreshing usability...most appropriate for lower division undergraduate courses.
