Title: Exploring the Spanish Language
Written By: Christopher J. Pountain
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=034071946X
Description:

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.
