Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures


Introduction to Scholarship in Modern Languages and Literatures by David G. Nicholls

Features sixteen completely new essays by leading scholars. Designed to highlight relations among languages and forms of discourse, the volume is organised into three sections: `Understanding Language' provides a broad overview of the field of linguistics; `Forming Texts' offers tools for understanding how speakers and writers shape language; `Reading Literature and Culture' continues the work of the first two sections by introducing major areas of critical study.


Here we have the essential guide to language and literary studies in the twenty-first century. -- Simon E. Gikandi
