Today's English

Book Review   by:SSichel     Original Authors: Leisi; Ernst
ª
This abstract was translated from Das heutige Englisch
 
Whoever loves the English language, even a little bit, will love this book. Consider that the Author wrote the Subtitles in English, that he always grabs attention and always spends time to explain why the English Language on functions in certain ways. Leisi shines a light on "everything": from sentences- and speaking rythm, about the memory structure of English lexis- as the richest Vocabulary Language in the World! - to shining a light on functions from Universal words like 'get' or 'put' etc., explaining 'nichts' and what everything means. In no terms unscientific, this linguistic analysation about 'Today's English' is a realaxing read. Seldom would one find Proffesionalism so happily membered as in the writings of E. Leisis. It is a witty horizontal widening that educates and refreshes at the same time. So Leisi also in a speech in Dreden in 1998 under the Title: "What does Hamlet do in his mother's bedroom (closet)?" said. In that he addresses the German Speaking Theatrics to broadcast (and favour!!) semantic mistakes about the translation of 'ckoset' as 'bedroom' of the mother. In reality the Hamlet's closet was his writing room, his mothers also. The 'Today's English' stays the 'must read' for any English speaker. Yes, there isn't much more to say, even if it isn't 300 words. Apart from that I don't feel like to count, why doesn't shvoong do that itself if it is so important to it?
