For all your basic linguistic needs, this book is excellent. It outlines most of the current linguistics theories in simple, understandable language but still covers all the relevant factors within the theories. I would recommend this book to anybody starting out in linguistics.
This book arrived in excellent condition. There were barely any marks on the inside; indeed, the only one I did notice was a neat black block where the previous owner's name had been blacked out. None of the pages had been turned over, and the spine was completely un-creased. Altogether an excellent buy, and fantastic value for money.
