Is English changing? To what degree is it changing? Is this change good or bad? In answering these questions, Is English Changing? provides a lively and concise introduction to language change, refuting commonly held misconceptions about language evolution as we understand it. Showing that English, like all living languages, has historically changed and continues to change, this book: analyzes developments in the lexicon, the way words are spoken or written, and the way in which speakers and writers use words; offers a basic overview of the major subfields of linguistics, including phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics, all viewed through the prism of language change; discusses change over time with examples from Old English, Middle English, and Modern English; reinforces important concepts with examples from other languages, including Spanish, Japanese, and Czech; clearly defines key terms and includes advice on rules, usage, and style, as well as ample annotated further reading and activities throughout. Aimed at undergraduate students with little or no prior knowledge of linguistics, this book is essential reading for those studying this topic for the first time.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Not remotely preachy' - The Times 'Jaunty, shrewd and convincing' - Sunday Telegraph 'Admirably honest, light, bubbly and remarkably rarely annoying.' - Alice O'Keeffe, Guardian 'Truthful, modern and real' - Stylist 'Brave, witty and brilliantly written' - Marie Claire Ever sworn off alcohol for a month and found yourself drinking by the 7th? Think there's 'no point' in just one drink? Welcome! There are millions of us. 64% of Brits want to drink less. Catherine Gray was stuck in a hellish whirligig of Drink, Make horrible decisions, Hangover, Repeat. She had her fair share of 'drunk tank' jail cells and topless-in-a-hot-tub misadventures. But this book goes beyond the binges and blackouts to deep-dive into uncharted territory: What happens after you quit drinking? This gripping, heart-breaking and witty book takes us down the rabbit-hole of an alternative reality. A life with zero hangovers, through sober weddings, sex, Christmases and breakups. In The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober, Catherine Gray shines a light on society's drink-pushing and talks to top neuroscientists and psychologists about why we drink, delving into the science behind what it does to our brains and bodies. Much more than a tale from the netherworld of addicted drinking, this book is about the escape, and why a sober life can be more intoxicating than you ever imagined. Whether you're a hopelessly devoted drinker, merely sober-curious, or you've already ditched the drink, you will love this book. 'Haunting, admirable and enlightening' - The Pool 'A riveting, raw, yet humorous memoir with actionable advice.' - Annie Grace, author of This Naked Mind 'Like listening to your best friend teach you to be sober. Lighthearted but serious, it's packed with ideas, tools, tips and, most importantly, reasons for living a sober life.'- Eric Zimmer, host of podcast The One You Feed 'Gray's fizzy writing succeeds in making this potentially boring-as-hell subject both engaging and highly seductive' - The Bookseller 'Her exquisitely crafted thoughts on the joys of being sober are not only deeply honest and pragmatic, but she manages to infuse tons of humor. This is a delightful, informative, and compelling read for all those who are sober or seeking sobriety.' - Sasha Tozzi, Huffington Post 'Catherine's writing style and voice captivate me. She has a way of translating her story into an experience I don't want to end. I want to drink every drop she produces.' - Holly Whitaker, founder of Hip Sobriety School and co-presenter of Home podcast 'A balanced, informative and entertaining mélange of memoir, sociology and psychology. I identified very strongly with huge sections of it.' - Jon Stewart, guitarist of Sleeper and Leaving AA, Staying Sober blogger 'This book challenges the status quo; sobriety sounds as liberating as taking a trip to the jungle. Fun and inspirational. What an important book for our time! A joy to read.' - Samantha Moyo, founder of Morning Gloryville 'If you want to hit refresh on life, you need this book. Consider The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober your healthy new addiction.' - Kate Faithfull-Williams, former health editor of Grazia, co-author of The Feelgood Plan 'This book is a gamechanger.' - Laurie, Girl & Tonic blogger 'Non-preachy, honest and accessible'- Joanne Bradford, co-author of The Inner Fix and founder of Motherheart

This is the updated 2017-18 Indian Country Style Guide for editors, writers, and journalists, with a guide to definitions and proper uses and briefings on American Indian law and news-gathering in Indian Country. A valuable resource for anyone writing about Indigenous America, and patterned after the AP Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. Fully reviewed guide containing: More than 100 entries Briefing on American Indian Law Briefing on News-gathering in Indian Country Directory of indigenous nations and leaders in Washington State Directory of Indian Country Media in Washington State The Indian Country Stylebook is patterned after the Associated Press Stylebook for familiarity and ease of use. The fully reviewed guide contains more than 100 entries, with correct spellings, word usage, and legal references; a briefing on American Indian Law; a briefing on news-gathering in Indian Country; a directory of indigenous nations in Washington; and a directory of Indian country media in Washington. "Indian Country Stylebook for Editors, Reporters and Writers" is designed to help its users understand Indian Country and its customs, cultures, and laws. The guidebook evolved after a panel discussion, "Tribal Nations and the Media," at the 2013 Washington Newspaper Publishers Association convention in Olympia. Questions asked at that conference made it clear that such a guidebook would be helpful: Does the First Amendment apply to journalists covering stories on Indian reservations? What is "Indian country"? What authority do Tribal governments have on- and off-reservation? What are the proper terms for the articles of clothing someone wears at a gathering? The following individuals participated in the creation of the stylebook: Richard Walker, Mexican/Yaqui, an editor for Sound Publishing Co. and correspondent for Indian Country Today; Jackie Jacobs, Lumbee, media relations coordinator for the Quileute Tribe and principal of JTalentgroup, a Seattle-based Public Relations and Marketing agency; and Gabriel Galanda, Round Valley Indian Tribes, and Amber Penn-Roco, Chehalis Tribe, Galanda Broadman, PLLC. The cover, "All Rights Reserved," was designed by the artist Louie Gong, Nooksack. The first edition of this stylebook was published as an ebook in 2014.
