Language A to Z (Student edition) - e-book
A new edition of this guide to language terms for students of English in the National Curriculum. First published in 1991, it is now made available again through the Crystal Books Project.
This series of books for schools - available for the first time online - originally appeared in 1991, and has been revised and updated to take account of the fresh interest in English language study that has been a part of the school curriculum over the past decade. There were originally two books, aimed at Key Stages 3 and 4, and these have now been integrated into a single work. A search facility has been added to the e-book to enable users to cross-refer between entries.
Over 400 language terms have been taken from the various programmes of study and explained in a lively and entertaining way, with cartoons added by Edward McLachlan. Topics include grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, punctuation, style, literary language, and questions of usage.
NOTE: The e-book you purchase can be read on most eReaders. If you have a Kindle device you will need to select the Mobi file to download after you have paid for your e-book, but for any other device please download the normal ePub file.
