Now thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of this essential guide features: * A multimedia companion website featuring quizzes, downloadable audio clips, Powerpoint slides and video lectures to match the book's structure-- for use in the classroom or during private study: * A new introduction to the field of linguistics, instantly familiarizing students to key issues and topics * Extra material on the different varieties of English worldwide - including more examples of regional dialects An Introduction to English Language is carefully designed as a course-book for either group or individual study, and it remains the essential text for students and teachers of English language and introductory linguistics.
