For students already studying English Language at school, it will provide a concise but comprehensive learning aid. Part One covers core subjects taught in the first year of most English Language degrees. Topics include: phonetics and phonology; vocabulary; inflectional morphology; syntax; the history of English; regional and social variation; language change; and language and poetry. Part Two tackles the study skills needed at university level and discusses issues such as lectures, tutorials and seminars; writing skills; essays and dissertations; and examinations. Learning tools include a sample degree exam paper and a sample essay answer.
