Abstract:

Intended primarily for newcomers to the subject, but with new material
designed to help the more advanced reader, How to Study Linguistics is
written in a refreshing and engaging style. Ideal for those who are
beginning linguistics, it assumes no prior knowledge and contains many
useful suggestions for developing a secure understanding of the
subject. Chapters discuss strategies for studying phonology, syntax
and semantics, and for pursuing branches of linguistics, such as
sociolinguistics, stylistics and psycholinguistics, as well as
practical advice on writing essays. The book also includes a glossary
to aid learning and revision.

If you are new to linguistics as a subject and beginning a course at
undergraduate or sixth-form level, How to Study Linguistics is the
ideal introduction and companion to your studies.

� Covers all the core areas of linguistic study, with chapters
discussing strategies for studying phonology, syntax and semantics
� Explores other branches of linguistics such as sociolinguistics,
stylistics, and psycholinguistics
� Includes a chapter on writing linguistics essays and a detailed
glossary to aid learning and revision
� Second edition includes new material designed to help the more

How to Study Linguistics is both a guide to current ideas about
linguistics and a refreshingly practical text book. It will not only
develop your skills as a language student, but will also make an often
complex and daunting subject easy to understand, and a pleasure to
study.
