Description


The bestselling first edition of Essential Linguistics presented the basic concepts of linguistics in everyday language, and showed the connections between linguistic theory and classroom practice. David and Yvonne Freeman make the Second Edition even more valuable by:

  • clearly explaining English phonology, morphology, and syntax and the implications for teaching

  • using the International Phonetic Alphabet to prepare students for the Praxis examination

  • including chapters on first and second language acquisition research and theories

  • reviewing ESL teaching methods.

With examples, activities, and end-of-chapter applications that link linguistic theory and classroom practice, the Freemans show teachers how to use their new understandings of linguistics to help student learning. Essential Linguistics, Second Edition will be your go-to resource for all things linguistics, now better than ever.
