Subject: Self-Taught Linguistic Approach
Question: Hello respected experts of the Linguistics Branch,

Looking for a book that covers a general overview of all
Linguistic topics and sub-topics.

On this page of the website
<a href='http://linguistlist.org/pubs/books/index.cfm' target='_blank'>http://linguistlist.org/pubs/books/index.cfm</a>; there is an
extensive list in the ''Linguistic Field'' list. Are you able to
recommend the least amount of textbooks required that
would briefly cover all areas in this list and provide next
steps to continue the study?

Let me know if such a piece of literature exists and which
book covers the topic with a very optimistic view point
covering all different approaches to the science.

Thank you in advance! Please let me know if you have any
questions!

Regards,

Kurt.R.Graham

Reply: You can try a textbook I wrote for precisely the purposes that you mention, _The Language of Language. A Linguistics Course for Starters_:

The book comes complete with a workbook, a blog and instructor resources, all available from the above site.
