Summary
This book offers an introduction to the structures and varieties of Spanish, covering all the major levels of linguistic forecasting: considerable attention is paid to Judeo-Spanish and creoles. No previous knowledge of linguistics is assumed and a glossary of technical terms, in conjunction with exercises and activities, helps to reinforce key points. The book is written specifically with English-speaking learners of Spanish in mind, and readers will find a good deal of practical help in developing skills such as pronunciation and the appropriate use of register
