Abstract:

This accessible new textbook is the only introduction to linguistics in
which each chapter is written by an expert who teaches courses on that
topic, ensuring balanced and uniformly excellent coverage of the full range
of modern linguistics. Assuming no prior knowledge the text offers a clear
introduction to the traditional topics of structural linguistics (theories
of sound, form, meaning, and language change), and in addition provides
full coverage of contextual linguistics, including separate chapters on
discourse, dialect variation, language and culture, and the politics of
language.

There are also up-to-date separate chapters on language and the brain,
computational linguistics, writing, child language acquisition, and
second-language learning. The breadth of the textbook makes it ideal for
introductory courses on language and linguistics offered by departments of
English, sociology, anthropology, and communications, as well as by
linguistics departments.
