Language defines us as human beings. Despite this it remains an

renowned linguist David Nunan. Drawing on a wide range of anecdotes and
stories from personal experience, Nunan offers a thought-provoking and
entertaining way into the basics of language study. The book is framed with
student-friendly features including questions, further reading and a glossary
of linguistic terminology and key linguists.
