Book Information


Title: Key Terms in Linguistics
Written By: Howard Jackson
Series Title: Key Terms

'Key Terms in Linguistics' explains all of the terms which students of
linguistics and English language are likely to encounter during their
undergraduate study. The book is organised according to the modules under
which linguistics is studied, starting with explanations of the terms
associated with phonetics, phonology, semantics, syntax and morphology. The
book also looks at specialised option courses, taken in later years of
study, including sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, corpus linguistics
and discourse analysis. The final section, Schools of Linguistics, outlines
the major frameworks within which linguistics is studied and the linguists
associated with each of them.

The book also points readers towards further publications for more
extensive exposition. Accessibly written, with complicated terms and
concepts explained in an easy to understand way, 'Key Terms in Linguistics'
is an essential resource for students of linguistics.
