Abstract:

Language in the Real World challenges traditional approaches to linguistics
to provide an innovative introduction to the subject. By first examining
the real world applications of core areas of linguistics and then
addressing the theory behind these applications, this text offers an
inductive, illustrative, and interactive overview for students. Key areas
covered include animal communication, phonology, language variation, gender
and power, lexicography, translation, forensic linguistics, language
acquisition, ASL, and language disorders. Each chapter, written by an
expert in the field, is introduced by boxed notes listing the key points
covered and features an author's note to readers that situates the chapter
in its real world context. Activities and pointers for further study and
reading are also integrated into the chapters and an end of text glossary
is provided to aid study.

Professors and students will benefit from the interactive companion website
that includes a student section featuring comments and hints on the chapter
exercises within the book, a series of flash cards to test knowledge and
further reading and links to key resources. Material for professors
includes essay and multiple choice questions based on each chapter and
additional general discussion topics.

Language in the Real World shows that linguistics can be appreciated,
studied, and enjoyed by actively engaging real world applications of
linguistic knowledge and principles and will be essential reading for
students with an interest in language.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your

EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
