Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study
and are one-stop resources for students.

Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible
overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses,
commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and
flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections -
introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer
self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these
sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

Researching English Language:

independent research projects

- offers advice about research methods with reference to an extensive range
of English Language topics including variation in accents, news discourse,
forensic linguistics, child language development and many more.

- guides readers step-by-step through the research process, from initial
ideas to the submission of the dissertation

- includes an extensive range of activities and points for discussion

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

- includes key readings from leading English language researchers,
including Ronald Carter; Jennifer Coates; Ruqaiya Hasan; Roz Ivanic; Ben
Rampton; John Sinclair.
