Opis: Shakespeare's English - Keith Johnson

Shakespeare's English: A Practical Linguistic Guide provides students with a solid grounding for understanding the language of Shakespeare and its place within the development of English. With a prime focus on Shakespeare and his works, Keith Johnson covers all aspects of his language (vocabulary, grammar, sounds, rhetorical structure etc.), and gives illuminating background information on the linguistic context of the Elizabethan Age. As well as providing a unique introduction to the subject, Johnson encourages a "hands-on" approach, guiding students, through the use of activities, towards an understanding of how Shakespeare's English works. This book offers: * A unique approach to the study of Early Modern English which enables students to engage independently with the topic * Clear and engagingly written explanations of linguistic concepts * Plentiful examples and activities, including suggestions for further work * A glossary, further reading suggestions and guidance to relevant websites Shakespeare's English is perfect for undergraduate students following courses that combine English language, linguistics and literature, or anyone with an interest in knowing more about the language with which Shakespeare worked his literary magic.Author's acknowledgements Publisher's acknowledgements Chronology of Shakespeare's works Phonetic symbols used 1.
