Contemporary Linguistics
An Introduction

William O'Grady (University of Hawaii at Manoa) and 
John Archibald (University of Calgary)

U.S. Edition prepared by Mark Aronoff (State University of New York at
Stony Brook) and Janie Rees-Miller (Marietta College)

Contemporary Linguistics provides the most comprehensive introductory
linguistics coverage available today. Its lucid and direct writing
style makes even complex concepts easy to grasp, while the extensive
apparatus helps students master the course material. o Offers
integrated and comprehensive coverage of linguistics written by
experts in the field - from phonology, morphology, syntax, and
semantics to cross-curricular topics such as sociolinguistics and
psycholinguistics - and prepares students for further work in
linguistics. o Includes a new chapter on Native American languages
and thoroughly revised chapters on sociolinguistics and computational
linguistics. o Provides extensive support for students in the form of
chapter objectives and summaries, key terms and concepts, recommended
readings, and questions that test and reinforce material presented in
the chapter.
