Title: Varieties of English
Subtitle: Volumes 1-4. Set + CD-ROM
Edited By: Edgar W.W.Schneider
Description:

These new multimedia textbooks cover the phonology, morphology and syntax
of varieties of English around the world. They will be published in four
volumes, sorted according to regions, and each volume will be accompanied
by an interactive CD-ROM.

The articles, written by widely acclaimed specialists, provide concise and
comprehensive information on the phonetic, morphological and syntactic
characteristics of each variety discussed. They are followed by exercises
and study questions that can be used for class-room assignments as well as
for self study in preparation for exams.

The multimedia CD-ROM contains sound samples, speech recordings,
interactive and synchronized maps, an extensive bibliography on relevant
research literature, and links to pertinent websites.

Key features:
- include study questions and exercises that will involve students actively
in the learning process
- division into regions will allow teachers to focus onto specific areas
- enhanced by a multimedia CD-ROM with a unique collection of speech
recordings of English and interactive maps that allow either phonological
or morphosyntactic (grammatical) comparisons

Varieties of English will be essential reading for those studying and
teaching English linguistics and also invaluable for researchers requiring
an update in the area.
