Germ: the Language of Infection starts with the story of an outbreak of exotic tropical infection in faraway places, then moves much closer to home where the action has been simmering away for some time. And that is just by way of introduction.
The main narrative follows the theme of language building-blocks in this whistle-stop tour of infection. Readers of this blog will recognise the chapter titles: nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions and punctuation. They are applied here in more detail with examples of the language in action and supporting media.
As with this blog, so it will be with the eBook. Germ, the Language of Infection has set its course to become a living document. The more users take up this invitation, the more this eBook will need to adapt to the on-line learning community.
