Summary

A major introductory language/linguistics textbook written specifically for English and Education majors, How English Works is an engaging introduction to the structure of English, general theories in linguistics, and important issues in sociolinguistics.

This accessible text provides more extensive coverage of issues of particular interest to English and Education majors. Tapping into our natural curiosity about language, it invites all students to connect academic linguistics to everyday use of the English language and to become active participants in the construction of linguistic knowledge.

The second edition provides updated examples of current language change, including new slang, as well as new research findings on American dialects, language acquisition, language evolution, eggcorns, English and the Internet, and much more.
