Semester, es ist einfacher geschrieben und hat ein besseres Layout. Jul 24, Adastra rated it liked it Shelves: uni , non-fiction. Wow, I actually for once read a book for university cover to cover! Though this book has everything you need for a English Linguistics basic module exam, I don't particularly like it. First of all it's butt ugly.
What were they thinking when they gave it a baby pink and baby blue cover? Is this supposed to represent English Linguistics as infantile? Secondly, the layouter obviously never heard anything about readability. The text is way too small and too close to the spine of the book, making it Wow, I actually for once read a book for university cover to cover! The text is way too small and too close to the spine of the book, making it sometimes painful to read this book.
There also could have been more chapterisation in order to make it easier to find what you're looking for. And thirdly, the pages are too thick. My advice: get a better cover, make the pages thinner, the font bigger and find a new concept for the keywords at the side of the pages. Then I probably wouldn't have anything to complain.

While I found phonetics, phonology and morphology to be done well and rather easily understandable, semantics felt awful and just glossed over.

English linguistics. Originally written for a German-speaking audience, 'English Linguistics: Essentials' addresses an international readership. In the scene-setting Chapter I, the reader is introduced to the major dichotomies and research traditions of 20th century linguistics structuralism, formalism, functionalism , recent developments in the field, such as corpus linguistics and the renewed interest in — including innovative approaches to — historical linguistics, and a brief evaluation of the state of English linguistics at the turn of the 21st century. The following chapters deal with the core branches of linguistics in the following order: phonetics and phonology, morphology especially word-formation , grammar, semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics. One chapter is specifically concerned with the structure of English from a contrastive English-German and typological perspective. This chapter can be profitably read even by readers whose knowledge of German is rudimentary or non-existent since it places contrastive linguistics within the other branches of comparative linguistics, adopting a specifically typological perspective, and discusses bundles of distinctive structural properties of English not addressed elsewhere in the book.
