Product description

Review

'Very clear and easy to read for beginners; user-friendly and non-threatening to those nervous of linguistics; chapters in absorbable bite-size chunks.' Jean Aitchison, Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication, University of Oxford

'Perfect for the beginners' level introductory linguistics course, both in style and content. The exercises and discussion are excellent. One of the highlights of the book is the clear links between chapters.' Hugh Buckingham, Professor of Linguistics, Louisiana State University

'An impressive breadth of coverage ... clear presentation, lucid style and accessibility ... a solid foundation for further study in linguistics as well as being a pleasure to read in its own right.' Alan Smith, Web Journal of Modern Languages and Linguistics

Book Description

Unrivalled in its popularity, The Study of Language is quite simply the best introduction to the field available today. Covering all of the essential topics, this third edition has been extensively revised to include fresh study questions, a comprehensive glossary, and new sections on important contemporary issues in language study.
