The second edition of this distinguished textbook introduces undergraduates to the concepts, terminology and representations needed for an understanding of how English is pronounced around the world. Assuming no prior knowledge, this textbook guides the reader through the vocal tract and explains how the sounds of speech are made, offering an accessible and expanded introduction to areas including transcription, vowels and acoustic analysis. As far as possible, it uses naturally-occurring conversational speech so that readers are familiar with the details of everyday talk (and not just the careful pronunciations presented in dictionaries.) The book also includes a new concluding chapter that works through a piece of spoken data to show the reader how a more complete phonetic analysis can be conducted. Examples are taken from around the English-speaking world, including North America, Australia, New Zealand and varieties of British English. The book takes an open-minded approach to what sounds of English might be significant for making meaning, and highlights the significance of word meaning, morphology, sociolinguistics and conversational interaction in phonetic analysis.

How does the English language work? If you are interested in discovering the answer to this question, then An Introduction to English Language is the ideal place to start. Written in a clear, lively, and easy-to-follow style, this introductory textbook is based around three core topics of linguistic study: WORD: English words, how they fit into sentences, their internal structure, their meaning and how they make up vocabularies for various purposes. SOUND: the sound systems of English, its phonetics and phonology, and English intonation and stress patterns. SENTENCE: English sentence structure and introductory English grammar. Packed with classroom tested examples and graded exercises, the third edition of this popular book features: * a multimedia companion website, containing Powerpoint slides, mini-lectures, quizzes and downloadable audio files to aid study * new material on language variation and change, including more examples of regional dialects, and extra material on New Englishes * a new introduction to linguistics as a subject, familiarizing students with key issues and topics. Carefully designed as a course-book for either group or individual study, An Introduction to English Language remains an essential text for students and teachers of English language and introductory linguistics.

Fireworks erupt over Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach on December 31, delighting the hundreds of thousands of people who have come to celebrate both the Feast of lemanja and New Year's Eve. Reflecting Brazil's cultural diversity, this traditional spectacle combines native, African, and Christian beliefs and rituals. Clad in blue and white, the colors of lemanja, the goddess of all waters, celebrants cast offerings into the water just before midnight, asking lemanja for her protection and blessing. The oferendas includes flowers, food, candles, and perfume. At the stroke of midnight, fireworks explode overhead, and the throngs sing and dance to celebrate the new year. Book jacket.

The meaning of a word is composite of a number of relations: reference to external context, relations with other words of a similar or opposite meaning, collocational relations, and so on. The book grapples with the meaning problem, but then goes on to look at the contexts in which words are used and the purposes for which they are used, raising the question whether it is more sensible to talk about English "vocabularies" rather than English "vocabulary".
