Title: Language Through the Looking Glass: Exploring Language and Linguistics
Written By: Marina Yaguello
Translated By: Trevor A Harris
Description:

What can wordplay--as understood in the broadest sense--teach us about language, its functions, characteristics, structure, and workings? Using Lewis Carroll's Alice as a starting point, Yanguello takes the reader on a vivid and unconventional voyage into the world(s) of language, charting the major themes of linguistics along the way. This is an entertaining and original introduction to the nature of language that will appeal to students and teachers alike.
