Description:

This textbook is a self-contained introduction to linguistics for beginning
students. It offers a unified approach to language from several
perspectives. A language is a complex structure represented in the minds of
its speakers, and this book introduces the tools necessary for
understanding this structure. In addition, it focuses on how small children
acquire their native language; the psychological processes which are
involved in mature speakers producing and understanding language;
linguistic difficulties that arise as a consequence of brain damage or
genetic disorders; and additional issues that arise when we consider
individual speakers as part of a social community.
