This year, 'Lang101 Workbook' offers 460 commented exercises and
activities, dedicated to absolute beginners to the study of language.

We designed the workbook as a companion resource to our textbook, in

and activities.

Part 1 of the workbook contains 360 exercises corresponding to the twelve
chapters of the textbook (30 per chapter), followed by 100 cross-chapter
exercises, aimed at synthesis alongside analysis. Part 2 contains
commented answers to all exercises.

Topics include the nature of scientific investigation; the structure of words,
sounds and sentences; typical vs. disordered uses of language; child
language, language learning and language play, as well as politeness,
persuasion and humour.

The companion website, 'Lang101', contains more activities for self-study or
for the classroom, instructors' resources which include teaching slides and
class handouts, and a blog dedicated to linguistics for starters. Visit

The workbook can be browsed at http://www.amazon.com/dp/1475057369,
