Reviews

"...the authors have done a thorough job of incorporating key concepts and seminal research in an accessible but comprehensive linguistics text for preservice and practicing teachers.  This is a reader-friendly text and the new additions to the current volume serve to promote understanding of linguistic concepts in a manner that is within reach for nonlinguists." --TESOL Journal
