Title: Analytical Linguistics
Written By: Yemi Ogunsiji
Farinde Raifu Olanrewaju
Series Title: LINCOM Coursebooks in Linguistics 16
Description:

Analytical Linguistics is a unique attempt to adapt the current state of
research in linguistics to the imperatives of human interactions. One of
the deficiencies of some books is the neglect of application of the
concepts they explain. Being aware of this, the authors have carefully
packaged the book to include other theoretical and practical issues. The
book has two main parts: the first part is made up of eleven chapters
(including the introduction). In this section, topics related to the main
levels of linguistic analysis: lexis, phonetics and phonology, semantics,
and syntax, are explicated with ample and appropriate illustrates.

The second part investigates the link between them. Some of the chapters in
this section equally critically examine the borders of linguistics with
some neighbouring disciplines. The various chapters are presented in simple
but not simplistic language. This style makes the book reader-friendly. A
merit of this book is its unambiguous differentiation of seemingly similar
concepts. It is clearly an articulate and analytic presentation of language
and the roles it plays in human communication. It is a useful and
meaningful contribution to scholarship. Students in universities,
polytechnics and colleges of education will definitely find it a good
companion.
