The revised and expanded edition of Relevant Linguistics provides a
straightforward, accessible introduction to the basics of English
phonetics, phonology, morphology, morphophonology, and syntax for education
students and all non-linguistics majors. This textbook addresses the
growing need to familiarize classroom teachers and other non-linguistics
students with the structure and use of language. In particular, teacher
training programs are beginning to realize the importance of linguistics as
linguistic diversity in schools rises. Most teacher trainees find
themselves in a linguistics classroom at some point during their education.

This book is designed to provide teachers with a foundation of linguistic
knowledge and, more importantly, the skills to respond to whatever
linguistic situations might arise in their classrooms. Each chapter leads
students through descriptive analyses of examples from English, helps them
grasp linguistic concepts, and provides them with reference materials for
future classes they will teach. Building on the highly popular first
edition, the present edition contains more exercises, expanded and
clarified explanations of issues, and additional references to areas such
as the history of English and semantics.
