Author of German Intonation (OUP 1984)Review:
'beautifully produced and written, and laudably clear in what it sets out to do ... the author is throughout careful to ensure that brevity does not lead to obscurity; he selects judiciously and writes luminously ... both erudite and stimulating'
Glyn Hatherall, Ealing College of Higher Education, German Teaching, No.2, Dec. 1990
'a book which fills a basic need of German programs in English-speaking institutions: an introduction to the linguistic investigation of contemporary German ... It should prove to be a valuable textbook to accompany semester-long courses, and indidivual chapters could also be used to introduce
more specialized topics in the analysis of modern German. It is abreast of the current research in the field, the author has made a judicious selection of topics, and the presentation is well-structured and easy to follow. It is a volume which needs to be on the shelf of any linguist who regularly
teaches graduates or undergraduates the linguistic analysis of the contemporary language.'
Wilbur A. Benware, Zeitschrift fur Dialektologie und Linguistik, LIX (1992)
'there are many good features to it ... it is the only book of its kind'
Christopher M. Stevens, University of California, Los Angeles, Monatshefte, Vol. 84, No. 4, Winter 1992
`a valuable addition to the body of works on contemporary German'
Professor Helbig, Zeitschrift fur germanistische Linguistik
`a laudable attempt with minor flaws'
Joachim Mugdan, Zeitschrift fur germanistische Linguistik
