“This is an excellent resource… A really good ‘handbook’ to have in any English Department. The resource has been designed to slowly build students’ understanding of linguistic devices… The resource is clearly written which enables it be to be dipped in and out of as and when required. Provides clear definitions of terms and examples of how these can be applied… The ‘Analysis in Practice’ sections have been well thought out, and the style makes them easy to use. My students would benefit greatly from this resource.” – C Gibbons, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
