"English Linguistics" is a compact and easy-to-use introduction to English linguistics which
- is tailored to the needs of students of English at German, Austrian and Swiss universities,
- contains graded exercises to motivate students to carry out independent research, and
- bridges the gap between linguistics and the literary and cultural-studies components of the typical BA in English Studies.
Bachelor-wissen "English Linguistics" goes beyond the usual introduction in offering accompanying web resources which provide additional material and multi-media illustration.
The new edition includes current theoretical approaches in the fields of sociolinguistics and World Englishes.
