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.

Introducing English Language:

  • is the foundational book in the Routledge English Language Introductions series, providing an accessible introduction to the English language
  • contains newly expanded coverage of morphology, updated and revised exercises, and an extended Further Reading section
  • comprehensively covers key disciplines of linguistics such as historical linguistics, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics, as well as core areas in language study including acquisition, standardisation and the globalisation of English
  • uses a wide variety of real texts and images from around the world, including a Monty Python sketch, excerpts from novels such as Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, and news items from Metro and the BBC
  • provides updated classic readings by the key names in the discipline, including Guy Cook, Andy Kirkpatrick and Zoltán Dörnyei
  • is accompanied by a website with extra activities, project ideas for each unit, suggestions for further reading, links 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 the English language and linguistics.

Review:

"Written by two international experts, the second edition of this accessible book offers an engaging route into all aspects of the study of the English language. The topic coverage is wonderfully comprehensive, ranging from accents, world Englishes, and style, to literacy, language attitudes, and guidance on how to collect linguistic data. This up-dated edition is greatly enhanced by a new companion website with a range of additional material that will appeal to students and teachers alike. I am confident it will become an indispensable text for English Language courses internationally."
Janet Holmes, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
