Abstract:

'This innovative blend of textbook, workbook, and anthology is a welcome
addition to the introductory linguistics literature.'
David Crystal, Honorary Professor of Linguistics at the University of
Wales, Bangor

'With An Introduction to Linguistics and Language Studies, Anne McCabe
presents an enormously appealing, accessible, and up to date treatment of
the field to those who always wanted to know what it was all about -- but,
perhaps, were afraid to ask! Applied linguistics and its students are the
happy beneficiaries of McCabe's most welcome contribution.'
Heidi Byrnes, George M. Roth Distinguished Professor of German, Georgetown
University

This introductory textbook provides readers with a foundation in methods
for analyzing and understanding language from various theoretical
perspectives within linguistics and language studies. Its novel approach
introduces systemic functional linguistics, text and discourse analysis,
and formal approaches to linguistics. It demonstrates applications of these
approaches to reveal how we use language in society, how our brains process
language, and how we learn language. Topics include phonetics, phonology,
conversation analysis, morphology, syntax, semantics, language change and
variation, animals and language, the brain and language, and first and
second language acquisition. The main language focused on is English,
although other languages are also used to illustrate the linguistic
principles. Exercises and questions for reflection are provided throughout,
and a final chapter is included which gathers explanations of various
fields of practice within linguistics, written by linguists from around the
world, including David Crystal (Clinical Linguistics), Frances Christie
(Educational Linguistics), and Malcolm Coulthard (Forensic Linguistics).
The book offers an array of analytical tools for undergraduate students of
language, communication, and education, and provides an overview of the
field for those interested in further study in linguistics and applied
language studies.
