The framework for linguistics described in this book is not an introduction to linguistics in the conventional sense. Rather, it is an invitation to those entering the discipline to become intrigued by things lingual. Working from the premise that linguistics is not many disciplines, but one, however much it is sometimes divided up into formal ('theoretical') and sociolinguistic camps, it is designed to provide insight into phenomena operating within the lingual dimension of our experience, that circumscribes the field of linguistics. The framework allows young scholars entering the field to gain an understanding of why and how the discipline is academically sustainable, a perspective that is likely to be useful beyond the shifts in linguistic paradigms that they will no doubt experience in their academic lifetimes.

Second Edition
Academic literacy: prepare to learn will appeal to lecturers with large classes, as well as tutors dealing with smaller groups. Although the book could also be used in follow-up support courses or in academic writing centres, it is primarily intended for use with first-time students at universities, universities of technology or comprehensive institutions. It comprehensively covers - in ways different from the traditional - the range of skills, competencies and learning strategies that students at this level (and beyond) need:

Academic literacy: prepare to learn is different from traditional courses in that it is task-based: it requires of language learners who are developing their academic literacy to do authentic academic tasks and to solve real academic problems. It assumes that telling students about how tasks must be done is never enough - they must be allowed to demonstrate that they can actually do real academic work. The book is also different from other titles in that tasks have been sequenced in line with current research into the acquisition of academic literacy.

Not only students and lecturers, but also prospective students preparing for university entrance examinations will find the course a valuable resource.
