Book Information

   

Title: Personal Pronouns in Present-Day English
Written By: Katie Wales
Series Title: Studies in English Language
Description:

This is the first comprehensive book-length analysis of personal pronouns
in present-day English. Drawing on the Survey of English (SEU) corpus and
the International Corpus of English (ICE-GB), Katie Wales examines a wide
range of discourse, types and texts, and of varieties of English around the
world. Her approach is pragmatic and functional, rather than formal, and
her concern is with speakers and writers and their uses of language in
social, cultural and rhetorical contexts. The discussion is illustrated
with numerous examples of the usage of personal pronouns and also of
reflexives and possessives.
