Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book deals with broad issues about the language. It is reasonable to understand because most of the ideas are supported by detailed examples and studies. This book is suitable for college students interested in languages and the field of linguistics.

Great book! 23 Nov. 2014
By Jazael Bencosme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The study of language helped me understand my language class I take in college. It's very detailed and explains everything in a simple manner. I got the book on kindle, saved a lot of money then buying it in college or hard copy.
