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.
