5.0 out of 5 stars Big Fan 10 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love the contents of this book. Being an ESL teacher, I love everything to do with linguistics of course, and this book tops them all. It gives you short excerpts about what language is all about, where it came from, how it developed and how it's going to die also!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read. 1 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very interesting subject!. The book does a good job explaining the key areas. Some interesting chapters on how some languages share a lot in common. Also a few pages are set aside for explaining Chomsky's theories. Some interesting pages on word order and there was also some fascinating pages on sexism in language.

this product is a good but long read . providing you with more history of linguistics then the subject itself I suggest anyone who has little patience not to invest in this book . However I did learn a lot .
