During the writing of this course I have been extremely fortunate in being able to consult the files of the survey of English Usage at University College London. Without constant recourse to such a varied collection of specimens of actual English usage, I should have found it far more difficult to compose convincing examples suitable for use in a course such as this. Moreover, the insights I have been able to gain as Assistant Director of the survey of English Usage have convinced me that the examples are importantly representative of the varieties of English with which the foreign student most needs to become familiar; and the experience I have had of the analysis of survey texts has contributed much to the framework within which I have supplied the Language Notes.

Более того, понимание, приобретенное мною в качестве асси­ стента руководителя данного исследования, убедило меня в том, что при­ меры очень важны для показа того разнообразия сторон английского язы­ ка, с которым иностранному студенту настоятельно необходимо познако­ миться. Этот опыт анализа текстов в большинстве своем послужил осно­ вой. Дерек Дейви

Все люди, институты, организации, изделия и т.д., упомянутые в этом курсе, полностью вымышлены. Единственное отступление от этого принципа касается нескольких человек, институтов и организаций, чьи имена и названия употребляются повсеместно. Они были использованы с целью придания реализма, так же, как и современные...
