How does language work? What are the different elements? How do they all fit together? The Frameworks of English is a step-by-step guide through the various levels of language, describing the morphological, lexical, grammatical and phonological frameworks of contemporary English in a clear and logical way. Beginning with words as the building blocks of language, it investigates their internal structure and shows how words can be combined into larger and larger units, from phrases to sentences and beyond. The sound system of language is explored, covering the production of individual sounds as well as the features of syllable structure and connected speech. The third edition of this popular textbook: * features a new chapter on how to approach accent and dialect variation in English throughout the world * includes both spoken and written examples of electronically mediated language * offers updated suggestions for further reading and research

"This third edition retains the remarkably clear exposition and comprehensive coverage of all the linguistic nuts and bolts a beginner English language student needs to know, but is even more richly illustrated, and also includes a new chapter on variation. Once more Ballard has created the English language textbook of choice." - Jonathan Culpeper, Lancaster University, UK "Over the years, The Frameworks of English has developed into a veritable linguistic treasure trove. Kim Ballard strikes a nice balance between breadth of coverage and level of detail, making this book an essential tool for introductory English language courses." - Cristiano Broccias, University of Genoa, Italy 'A terrific resource for all students of the English language who want to know more precisely how it works. The essential elements of the spoken and written language are explained and discussed with outstanding clarity. The sections are very well developed, and there are excellent examples and illustrations. The impressive new chapter on accent and dialect makes the book even more comprehensive.' - David Lewis, Chief Examiner for WJEC A Level English Language, UK
