Open Book Case (Charity Book): Best Literary Short Stories: English Creative Writing Group Frankfurt
Are you looking for a genuine introduction to the linguistics of English that provides a broad overview of the subject that sustains students´ interest and avoids excessive detail? Introducing English Linguistics accomplishes this goal in two ways. First, it takes a top-down approach to language, beginning with the largest unit of linguistic structure, the text, and working its way down through successively smaller structures (sentences, words, and finally speech sounds). The advantage of presenting language this way is that students are first given the larger picture - they study language in context - and then see how the smaller pieces of language are a consequence of the larger goals of linguistic communication. Second, the book does not contain invented examples, as is the case with most comparable texts, but instead takes its sample materials from the major computerised databases of spoken and written English, giving students a more realistic view of language.

The invention of writing was one of the most important technological, cultural, and sociological breakthroughs in human history. With the printed book, information and ideas could disseminate more widely and effectively than ever before - and in some cases, affect and redirect the sway of history. Today, nearly one million books are published each year. But is the era of the book as we know it - a codex of bound pages - coming to an end? And if it is, should we celebrate its demise and the creation of a democratic digital future, or mourn an irreplaceable loss? The digital age is revolutionizing the information landscape. Already, more books have been scanned and digitized than were housed in the great library in Alexandria, making available millions of texts for a curious reader at the click of a button, and electronic book sales are growing exponentially. Will this revolution in the delivery of information and entertainment make for more transparent and far-reaching dissemination - or create a monopolistic stranglehold? In The Case for Books, Robert Darnton, an intellectual pioneer in the field of the history of the book and director of Harvard University´s Library, offers an in-depth examination of the book from its earliest beginnings to its shifting role today in popular culture, commerce, and the academy. As an author, editorial advisor, and publishing entrepreneur, Darnton is a unique authority on the life and role of the book in society. This book is a wise work of scholarship - one that requires listeners to carefully consider how the digital revolution will broadly affect the marketplace of ideas. 1. Language: English.

Are you able to slow down and reflect when necessary? Remember, just like Product of Culture Book I, if you think something has more meaning than meets the eye, it quite possibly does. Are you ready for journey number two? Than by all means have a listen and enjoy Product of Culture: Cases of Colesmith Book II. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Alan.

Featuring Latinate and Celtic words, weasel words and nonce-words, ancient words (´loaf´) to cutting edge (´twittersphere´) and spanning the indispensable words that shape our tongue (´and´, ´what´) to the more fanciful (´fopdoodle´), Crystal takes us along the winding byways of language via the rude, the obscure and the downright surprising. In this unique new history of the world´s most ubiquitous language, linguistics expert David Crystal draws on words that best illustrate the huge variety of sources, influences and events that have helped to shape our vernacular since the first definitively English word was written down in the fifth century (´roe´, in case you are wondering).
