*Well-crafted prose presents the material in a plot-driven way that makes students (and instructors) want to read the text.
*A range of simple to in-depth "fieldwork" and in-class Web Activities and Projects encourages students to work with data, to notice patterns and generalizations, and to generate hypotheses. Brief summaries in the text are supported by materials on the book's Companion Website.
*Special boxes (1) provide sample stimuli and key data, to assist students in reconstructing the logic of complex experiments and (2) address specific methods implemented by researchers.
*"Language at Large" text modules relate key concepts to fascinating examples pertinent to the world outside of academia--e.g., advertising, popular culture, the law. These modules are intended to reinforce newly-learned concepts and to stimulate thinking about how abstract ideas can be applied to concrete questions. Additional, updated examples, some drawn from the author's various blogs, will reside on the Companion Website.
*End-of-chapter "Digging Deeper" modules present topics of outstanding debate in the literature and point to additional readings. Students are encouraged to consider what kind of data or experimental design might help advance the debate. The modular structure of these sections gives instructors the flexibility to assign them or not, without sacrificing students' grasp of material in subsequent chapters.
*Full-color illustrations support the concepts presented in the text, and create a visually compelling layout.
