Here at Routledge, we're always committed to bringing you the best in language learning, and this new catalogue does exactly that. Giving you access to first-class texts and materials, from leading academics and linguists, and covering over 60 languages, it represents one of the most comprehensive collections in the world. This year, new publications include:
Partridge Slang Online. This ever popular reference is now available digitally, with easy search functions giving enthusiasts and researchers the chance to explore what has been described by the New Statesman as 'a veritable Madame Tussaud's of the vulgar language... a monumental piece of work.'
The Routledge Course in Business Chinese, by Qinghai Chen, Le Tang and Qiuli Zhao (all at University of Michigan, USA). Aimed at developing key skills and proficiency, this will give students the confidence to tackle real-life business situations.
Modern Japanese Grammar, by Naomi McGloin, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA, M. Endo Hudson, Michigan State University, USA, Fumiko Nazikian, Columbia University, USA and Tomomi Kakegawa, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, USA. Combining both grammar and functional usage, this is the latest addition to our Routledge Modern Grammars series.
Along with these, we're introducing Colloquial Tibetan by Jonathan Samuels as part of our bestselling Colloquials series, while our Language Families series welcomes a new member: The Languages of Japan and Korea, edited by Nicolas Tranter, University of Sheffield, UK
You'll find more information about these in this catalogue. In our drive to develop world-leading materials, we always welcome ideas, views and proposals for new texts. We also look forward to seeing you over the next year at our various conferences and on our academic visits.
Thank you for your continued support.
