This book offers an introduction to the structures and varieties of
Spanish, covering all the major levels of linguistic forecasting:
considerable attention is paid to Judeo-Spanish and creoles. No
previous knowledge of linguistics is assumed and a glossary of
technical terms, in conjunction with exercises and activities, helps
to reinforce key points. The book is written specifically with
English-speaking learners of Spanish in mind, and readers will find a
good deal of practical help in developing skills such as pronunciation
and the appropriate use of register.

Lingfield(s):	Applied Linguistics
Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
