A companion to "English: History, Diversity and Change", and like it an introductory text made up of essays by various writers. This one focuses on how English is used in various context -- everyday conversation, the workplace, rhetoric, literature, and so on. I found it mildly interesting, but very repetitive, with a strong tendency to focus on the obvious. Also, it is old enough (1992) so that issues created by the use of English in electronic media are barely touched upon. ( )
