Abstract:

The English Language series, which is international in focus, aims to
synthesize the wealth of existing linguistic research both on and in
English. The English Writing System describes how writing is not
simply ancillary to other aspects of language but vitally important to
almost everything we do. This book discusses the mechanics of the
writing systems of English; the different ways people process words on
a page and the mistakes they can make; how children and second
language learners acquire these systems the historical development of
the language and the progress of writing technology; in short, the
effectiveness of the writing systems of English.
