"[T]he book makes illuminating reading for authors, potential authors, editors, and perhaps teachers on MA courses. The discussions of the place and potential impact of visuals within coursebook materials are of particular interest." - ELT Journal "John Gray's The Construction of English is an original and engaging addition to the existing literature.
