Abstract:

In this activity-based textbook, Rebecca Hughes invites the reader to examine the differences between spoken and written English. Instead of presenting the student reader with a bewildering array of 'facts' about these two modes of communication, this book asks students to investigate the differences for themselves. Having worked through this book, students will have considered a wide range of spoken and written varieties and will be able to formulate their own opinions as to the differences present. English in Speech and Writing will be an essential text for students of language, linguistics and communication studies, as well as non-native speakers of English and their teachers.
