Rezensionen
"The linguistics field should have volumes like this for all of theworld's languages, or at least the world's major languages. Theauthors... have penned a comprehensive account of German phonetics,phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis, stylistics, dialectology, andthe historical background - in short, the makings for aninteresting and solid course in German linguistics."Multilingua

"I think this book succeeds at what must be a near impossibletask: to introduce beginning students to the structure of Germanand to linguistic analysis at the same time, and to do both in areader-friendly way that doesn't compromise on academicseriousness. This is a book, then, which students, teachers andeven researchers of German linguistics will welcome and from whichundergraduate courses will benefit hugely." Heinz Giegerich,Professor of English Linguistics, University ofEdinburgh

"The challenge in designing a successful language course is tointegrate enough general linguistic ideas to be able to describethe features of the language insightfully, while also illustratingthe classical linguistic problems of the language concerned. Thisbook succeeds in these aims, and deserves to find a place on thereading lists for all courses in German linguistics." TimesHigher Education Supplement
