Subtitle: An Introduction

Series Title: 2nd Edition
Description:

Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Written by a team based at one of the world's leading centers for
linguistic teaching and research, the second edition of this highly
successful textbook offers a unified approach to language, viewed from a
range of perspectives essential for students' understanding of the subject.

Using clear explanations throughout, the book is divided into three main
sections: sounds, words, and sentences. In each, the foundational concepts
are introduced, along with their application to the fields of child
language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language disorders, and
sociolinguistics, giving the book a unique yet simple structure that helps
students to engage with the subject more easily than other textbooks on the
market. This edition includes a completely new section on sentence use,
including an introduction and discussion of core areas of pragmatics and
conversational analysis; new coverage of sociolinguistic topics,
introducing communities of practice; a wealth of new exercise material and
updated further reading.
