The Frameworks of English covers everything students and non-specialists
need to know about linguistic structures. Kim Ballard describes the
morphological, lexical, grammatical and phonological frameworks of
contemporary English in a clear and logical way, guiding readers
step-by-step through the various levels. Beginning with words as the
building blocks of language, Ballard investigates the internal structure of
words before moving on to see how words can be combined into larger and
larger units, from phrases to sentences and beyond. In addition, three
chapters are devoted to the sound system of the language, showing how we
produce individual sounds as well as looking at syllable structure, stress
and intonation.

The second edition of this successful introductory guide:

-Expands upon certain aspects of the first edition and now includes an
extended chapter on discourse
-Highlights the typical differences between spoken and written language
choices at appropriate points throughout the text
-Features exercises and suggestions for further reading at the end of each Part
-Contains an enlarged glossary of linguistic terminology to aid study.

Also providing plenty of examples and helpful cross-referencing, this is an
essential one-volume survey which explores all the frameworks of English
and enables readers to understand these fascinating frameworks systematically.
