Abstract:

Linguistics: An Introduction to Linguistic Theory is a textbook,
written for introductory courses in linguistic theory for
undergraduate linguistics majors and first-year graduate
students. Twelve major figures in the field bring their expertise to
each of the core areas of the field - morphology, syntax, semantics,
phonetics, phonology, and language acquisition.


In each section the book is concerned with discussing the underlying
principles common to all languages, showing how these are revealed in
language acquisition and in the specific grammars of the world's
languages. Theoretical concepts are introduced through the analysis of
a wide set of language data from Arabic to Zulu. The student will
learn how to "do" linguistics by working through real linguistic
data. Each section explains how to define and solve a problem;
organizes the data into paradigms revealing the structured patterns in
the data; formulates generalizations based on these patterns; proposes
rules or principles to account for the generalization; seeks
independent evidence in its argument for the proposed theoretical
construct.

The book brings the latest developments in theoretical linguistics to
bear in its discussion of the traditional issues. It covers these
subjects in greater depth than is found in most introductory texts
permitting the student to proceed directly, after using this text, to
graduate courses in the field. It contains problems, a glossary, and a
bibliography for further reading.

Linguistics is supported by an instructor's manual.
