Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study

sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

independent research projects

of English Language topics including variation in accents, news discourse,
forensic linguistics, child language development and many more.

- illustrates each topic with examples from actual student projects and
published studies
