9780415448857: Introducing English Language: A Resource Book 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.

Introducing English Language:

  • is the foundational book in the Routledge English Language Introductions series and offers a grounding to all the titles featured in the series
  • gives comprehensive coverage of the essential aspects of the English language, as well as providing an introduction to key disciplines of linguistics such as historical, social and psycholinguistics, and also core areas in language study including acquisition, standardisation and the globalisation of English.
  • uses a wide variety of real texts and images that include: a transcript of a conversation between George W. Bush and Tony Blair, a controversial ‘apology’ broadcast on BBC Radio 4, excerpt from novels including ‘Alien’ and photographs from Hong Kong.
  • provides classic readings by the key names in the discipline including Guy Cook, Joan Cutting, Zoltán Dörnyei, Andy Kirkpatrick and John Sinclair
  • is accompanied by a supporting series website with additional activities, project ideas for each unit, further guidance on areas mentioned in the book, suggestions for further reading, weblinks to essential English Language resources, and course templates for lecturers.

Written by two experienced teachers and authors, this accessible textbook is an essential resource for all students of English language and linguistics.

Recensione:

‘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
