Product description

Review

'Its strength is in providing a general survey of mainstream linguistics in palatable, easily manageable and logically organised chunks. The chapter divisions allow for considerable flexibility, which has proved particularly important after recently restructuring our courses and reorganising the order in which to cover the topics.' Nigel Musk, University of Linkoping

'One of the most accessible and entertaining introductions available. Newly updated with a wealth of material for practice and discussion.' Stephen Matthews, University of Hong Kong

'Genuinely introductory, well suited for undergraduates … Yule's crisp and thought-provoking presentation works well for a wide range of students.' Elise Morse-Gagne, Tougaloo College

'The latest edition of this text contains the most extensive changes to date, and all have served to make a good textbook even better … the book is concise, thorough, and succinct. It is also extremely well-written … It is difficult to express how much information this author covers in so few words, while being so informative. There is no fluff in this book; every single sentence counts, every word is important.' The LINGUIST List

Book Description

This best-selling, popular textbook is the most fundamental and easy-to-use introduction for students with no prior knowledge of the study of language. Broad yet concise, this manageable overview of key topics draws students in with over fifty new tasks and engages them in learning with an online study guide.
