This book is a self-contained introduction to language and 
linguistics, suitable for use as a textbook and for 
self-study. Written by a team of distinguished linguists, it offers a 
unified approach to language from several perspectives. A language is 
a complex structure represented in the minds of its speakers, and this 
book provides the tools necessary for understanding this structure. It 
explains basic concepts and recent theoretical ideas in the major 
areas of linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and 
semantics), as well as the applications of these to the study of child 
language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language disorders, and 
sociolinguistics. The book is divided into three sections: sounds, 
words, and sentences. In each of these sections, the foundational 
concepts are introduced along with their applications in the above 
fields, giving this book a clear and unique structure. Each section is 
accompanied by extensive exercises and guidance on further reading.
