A complete basic course in English phonetics and phonology which combines academic material with practical exercises, both written and recorded. Since the publication of the first edition in 1983, this course has established itself as the most practical, comprehensive text in the field and become widely used in many parts of the world in universities and other institutions of higher education. It is used by both native and non-native speakers alike, and is suitable for those training to teach English as well as those studying the language at an advanced level. This new edition takes into account recent developments in the teaching of phonology. It includes updated references, fuller coverage of intonation, and a new chapter on different varieties of English with illustrative recorded material. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and phonology textbooks. It presents the basic factual material and crucial theoretical issues in a practical and readable way. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on further reading, discussion of the more challenging issues, written exercises and, where appropriate, suggestions for teachers. In addition the audio CDs include recorded exercises for every chapter which are particularly helpful for non-native speakers. A full answer key is available at the back of the book. Additional exercises and other supporting material are available online.

Originally published in 1976. This book is about the teaching of reading and writing in infant schools around Britain for all parents and teachers. It outlines some schemes, approaches, methods and developments but focuses on the pragmatic application. The acquisition and growth of literacy must be seen in the context of the child's total language development, and this book devotes some space to the before-school experience and how parents can help their children.

In Volume III, as in Volumes I and II, the classic topics of reading are included--from vocabulary and comprehension to reading instruction in the classroom--and, in addition, each contributor was asked to include a brief history that chronicles the legacies within each of the volume's many topics. However, on the whole, Volume III is not about tradition. Rather, it explores the verges of reading research between the time Volume II was published in 1991 and the research conducted after this date. The editors identified two broad themes as representing the myriad of verges that have emerged since Volumes I and II were published: (1) broadening the definition of reading, and (2) broadening the reading research program. The particulars of these new themes and topics are addressed.

Presenting the process of research in a practical sequence, including separate chapters on finding, analyzing, and integrating sources, the authors illustrate each stage of the process with examples of student and professional writing. Using a flexible and goal-oriented approach, the authors have created a text that blends the best features of a theoretically informed rhetoric, an interdisciplinary reading anthology, and a research guide.

This guide offers an introduction to the basic skills and intellectual tools required for making a study of fiction. It presents an explanation of the most common features of prose, using practical examples drawn from six short stories which are included as part of the study programme. The book is carefully structured in logical steps intended to lead the reader from attentive reading (to help produce a description of the piece), through analysis (inspecting, comparing and evaluating writing) to interpretation (making judgements on pieces of work and adopting different points of view). The overlapping of certain points and techniques is also explained and the book offers advice on spotting and analyzing specific writing techniques, gives practical advice on how to set about studying (keeping notes, organizing the page of work, drafting answers and so on) and offers self-assessment exercises and a detailed glossary. Under "Course Work", the book also suggests topics for discussion and essay topics for those using the book in a tutor-led setting.
