Title: Contemporary Linguistics
Written By: Francis Katamba
William O'Grady
Description:

Please Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

"Contemporary Linguistics", now in its second UK edition, has been fully
revised and updated to reflect the latest trends in scholarship.

An initiation into the intricacies of scientific linguistic analysis,
"Contemporary Linguistics" covers not only how language is structured, but
also how it functions both socially and culturally, and how it is acquired
and processed by speakers. Interdisciplinary areas such as
psycholinguistics, language acquisition and the growing field of
computational linguistics are explored as well as the fundamentals of
phonetics and phonology, syntax and semantics.
