Abstract:

New Edition

This text is for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in 
contemporary English, especially those whose primary area of interest is 
English as a second language, primary or secondary-school education, 
English stylistics, theoretical and applied linguistics, or speech pathology. 
The emphasis is on empirical facts of English rather than any particular 
theory of linguistics; the text does not assume any background in language or 
linguistics. In this newly revised edition numerous example sentences are 
taken from the Corpus of Contemporary American English. A full glossary of 
key terms, an additional chapter on pedagogy and new sections on cognitive 
semantics and politeness have been added. Other changes include: 
completely updated print references; web links to sites of special interest
and 
relevance; and a revised, reader-friendly layout. A companion website that 
includes a complete workbook with self-testing exercises and a 
comprehensive list of web links accompanies the book. The website can be 
found at the following address: 
http://dx.doi.org/10.1075/z.156.workbook

Students completing the text and workbook will acquire: a knowledge of the
sound system of contemporary English; an understanding of the formation of
English words; a comprehension of the structure of both simple and complex
sentence in 
English; a recognition of complexities in the expression of meaning; an
understanding of the context and function of use upon the structure of the
language; and an appreciation of the importance of linguistic knowledge to the 
teaching of English to first and second-language learners. 
Laurel J. Brinton is Professor of English Language at the University of
British 
Columbia. 

Donna M. Brinton is Senior Lecturer in TESOL at the University of Southern
Califonia's Rossier School of Education.
