Taking up some of the goals of the Contrastive Program formulated in the sixties and seventies of the last century, this book presents a comprehensive and fine-grained analysis of the major contrasts between German and English with the aim of showing how far the two closely related languages have moved apart and of providing new foundations for the study and the teaching of English from the perspective of German and the study of German from the perspective of English. It is based on numerous contrastive studies published by the authors and on a thorough exploration of the relevant literature on the two languages and on language typology in general. Parsimonious in its use of complex technical jargon, the book can be used both for the relevant B.A. modules and the relevant M.A. modules, as well as for more general courses on Comparative Linguistics and Contrastive Analysis. The fourth edition has added further elaborations of the introductory and final chapters on the basis of recent contributions.
