Abstract:

This is a new kind of textbook for courses in introductory
linguistics. It makes clear what is important or essential, and omits
what is not. It is strictly selective, highly structured, focused,
to-the-point and informative. It presents material in a way that
mirrors the structure of a typical semester of teaching, and
integrates many exercises into the text.

In doing this it meets the need of the busy student who wants the text
book to get straight to the point; and it suits the instructor looking
for a textbook which not only identifies key material, but integrates
it with numerous exercises, engaging the student in active learning.

The book organises, develops, integrates, and practices topics more
thoroughly than other textbooks. Chapters are short, each
corresponding, generally, to two typical class periods. They are
organised in a very clear way, with numbered and labelled
sections. They present information in lists and provide generous
illustrative material. Each chapter concludes with an outline, a list
of new concepts and terms, and with a set of short, often objective,
exercises. Thus the book will serve both as a study guide and as a
textbook for beginning students.

Essential Introductory Linguistics is supported by an instructor's manual.
