"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.
