3 Reviews

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.
Sociolinguistics:

  • provides a comprehensive introduction to sociolinguistics
  • draws on a wide range of real texts, from an interview with Madonna to articles in international newspapers and classroom discourse · uses real studies designed and conducted by students
  • provides classic readings by the key names in the discipline from Milroy and Holmes to Fairclough and Cameron.

Written by an experienced teacher and author, this accessible textbook is an essential resource for all students of English Language and Linguistics.
