Rezension bezieht sich auf: studium kompakt - Anglistik/Amerikanistik: Linguistics: Essentials: Studienbuch (Taschenbuch)
In short: an excellent English linguistics book for German university students studying English.
I would highly recommend absolute beginners to have Crystal's "A Dictionary of Linguistics and Phonetics" next to them while reading this book. Kortmann's "Essentials" reads like a Thieme Verlag book: very condensed and to the point. Every sentence is loaded with information and this makes it difficult to read in the beginning, but it's worth it!
The book is a great review for the "Zwischenprüfung". It is not enough for "Staatsexamen", but you better know every word of it- especially (for the Uni Freiburg students) if you have Prof. Kortmann as one of your examiners.
