Description:

“Advanced students of linguistics and practising linguists can read this

Professor Sheila Embleton, Department of Languages, Literature &

exhaustive and up-to-date coverage of sub-fields traditionally regarded as

research on relevant open questions.

The book includes coverage of key terms, a list of resources, and sections
on:
* history of research
* methodology
* phonology
* morphology
* grammatical categories
* syntax
* grammaticalization
* semantics
* etymology
* language contact
* sociolinguistics
* causes of language change
