The English Language

Henri B�joint, Universit� Lyon 2, France

Dictionaries of the national language of a country are an essential
and quite frequently controversial part of social life and learning.
This is an account of how such dictionaries are made, how they are
used, and the issues and problems that face their writers and editors.
It is wide-rangin g, scholarly, yet readable in its approach,
addressing the linguistic problems in areas such as distinguishing
meanings, writing definition, and providing synonyms.

(An Arnold Publication)

Introducing English Grammar guides readers through the practical analysis 
of the syntax of English sentences. With all special terms carefully 
explained as they are introduced, the book is written for readers with no 
previous experience of grammatical analysis. It is ideal for all 
beginning students of linguistics, English language, speech pathology, as 
well as students with primarily literary interests who need to cover the 
basics of linguistic analysis.
