Product description

Review

Hurford's style is very clear and there is certainly no better introduction to linguistics around for evolutionarily inclined outsiders. (Mark Aronoff, Evolutionary Linguistics)

Hurford's scope is encyclopaedic (N.J. Enfield, Times Literary Supplement)

About the Author

James R. Hurford is Emeritus Professor of General Linguistics, University of Edinburgh. He is co-editor, with Kathleen Gibson, of OUP's Studies in Language Evolution, co-founder, with Simon Kirby, of the Language Evolution and Computation Research Unit at the University of Edinburgh, and co-founder, with Chris Knight, of the EVOLANG series of international conferences on the evolution of language. His books include The Linguistic Theory of Numerals (CUP, 1975), Language and Number: The Emergence of a Cognitive System (Blackwell, 1987), Grammar: A Student's Guide (CUP 1994), and The Origins of Meaning (OUP 2007).
