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
