The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A Core Introduction to Language Analysis (second edition, 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite' titles.

  • includes a wide variety of real texts and data, from records of childrens first words to children's hand-written stories and emails
  • explores the language of children from a range of backgrounds and abilities, including deaf and bilingual children
  • is user-friendly and accessible, and provides a full glossary.
