These two books are free-standing, so either can be used separately for programmes of study in linguistics, language studies, language and communication or English language and linguistics. But extensive cross-referencing from the Reader makes for easy use of the books as a complementary pair.

Written by highly experienced university teachers, Aileen Bloomer, Patrick Griffiths, Andrew John Merrison, the coursebook is lively and accessible, interactive and above all produced with students firmly in mind.
