About the author (1997)

Elena Semino is Lecturer in the Dept. of Linguistics and Modern English Language at Lancaster University. She is extremely well thought of academically and is an active member of the stylistics assoc. PALA. Having Mick as the more experienced series editor and 'name', coupled with Elena as a young, bright academic, the combination of the two editors should work well.
