Frameworks of English by Kim Ballard

Book Description

The Frameworks of English covers everything students and non-specialists need to know about linguistic structures. Kim Ballard describes the morphological, lexical, grammatical and phonological frameworks of contemporary English in a clear and logical way, guiding readers step-by-step through the various levels. Beginning with words as the building blocks of language, Ballard investigates the internal structure of words before moving on to see how words can be combined into larger and larger units, from phrases to sentences and beyond. In addition, three chapters are devoted to the sound system of the language, showing how we produce individual sounds as well as looking at syllable structure, stress and intonation. The second edition of this successful introductory guide: - expands upon certain aspects of the first edition and now includes an extended chapter on discourse - highlights the typical differences between spoken and written language choices at appropriate points throughout the text - features exercises and suggestions for further reading at the end of each Part - contains an enlarged glossary of linguistic terminology to aid study. Also providing plenty of examples and helpful cross-referencing, this is an essential one-volume survey which explores all the frameworks of English and enables readers to understand these fascinating frameworks systematically.
