The last book I read was my English Language textbook. It’s called Introduction to the English Language and is written by Anne Curzan and a second author. While it was definitely not fun reading in the sense that I would’ve picked it out on my own, it was written in a conversational way using relatively current examples to make key points. I give the author two thumbs up for using academic terminology with modern examples because that did help me understand new concepts better. I love English but am not familiar with linguistics, which was the heavy focus of this class. So yes, I thought it was cool the way the textbook was written.
