English Language : Description, Variation and Context Paperback / softback

Edited by Jonathan Culpeper, Paul Kerswill, Ruth Wodak, Anthony McEnery, Francis Katamba


The second edition of this hugely successful textbook provides comprehensive coverage of a wide range of topics in theoretical and applied linguistics.

Written by leading academics in the field, this text offers a firm grounding in linguistics and includes engaging insights into current research. It covers all the key areas of linguistic analysis, including phonetics, morphology, semantics and pragmatics, and core domains of study, comprising the history of the English language, regional and social variation, style and communication and interaction.

Fresh material on research methods outlines key areas for consideration when carrying out a research project, and provides students with the framework they need to investigate linguistic phenomena for themselves. This is an invaluable resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate students on English Language and Linguistics degree programmes.
