Description:

This book provides a non-technical introduction to the study of language.
The core areas of language study are approached by focusing on questions
such as: Where does language come from? Why don't we all talk the same? Who
needs grammar? Pitched at a level which is suitable for students with no
experience of linguistics, this lively introduction to language approaches
will encourage students to think.


'Immensely informative and enjoyable.' - Ian Hancock, Professor of

'An excellent resource.' - April McMahon, Professor of English Language,
University of Edinburgh, UK
