              This book will tell all you need to know about British English spelling. It's a reference work intended for anyone interested in the English language, especially those who teach it, whatever the age or mother tongue of their students. It will be particularly useful to those wishi...ng to produce well-designed materials for teaching initial literacy via phonics, for teaching English as a foreign or second language, and for teacher training. English spelling is notoriously complicated and difficult to learn; it is correctly described as much less regular and predictable than any other alphabetic orthography. However, there is more regularity in the English spelling system than is generally appreciated. This book provides, for the first time, a thorough account of the whole complex system. It does so by describing how phonemes relate to graphemes and vice versa. It enables searches for particular words, so that one can easily find, not the meanings or pronunciations of words, but the other words with which those with unusual phoneme-grapheme/grapheme-phoneme correspondences keep company. Other unique features of this book include teacher-friendly lists of correspondences and various regularities not described by previous authorities, for example the strong tendency for the letter-name vowel phonemes (the names of the letters ) to be spelt with those single letters in non-final syllables.

              Told through personal interviews, this biographical look at Freddie Mercury and his role in the rock band Queen tells the story of three academics and an art student who decided to go against the rigid rules of the music industry and create their own movement. Speaking openly on ...all aspects of the band--from their rough start, the many times that they were about to break up, problems with the press, the stresses of being on tour, and internal disputes--Mercury gives a bittersweet and sometimes contradictory portrait of a publicly flamboyant but fiercely private man who became a rock icon for the 1970s and beyond. Dicho a traves de entrevistas personales, este estudio biografico de Freddie Mercury y su papel en el grupo Queen cuenta la historia de tres academicos y un estudiante del arte que decidieron hacer frente a las reglas rigidas de la industria musical y crear su propio movimiento. Hablando sin tapujos sobre todos los aspectos de la banda--desde los duros comienzos del grupo, las muchas ocasiones cuando estaban al punto de separarse, los problemas con la prensa, la presion de las giras y las disputas internas--Mercury provee un retrato agridulce y a veces contradictorio de un hombre publicamente extravagante pero intensamente privado que se convirtio en un icono rock de los 1970s y adelante.
