Abstract: The representation of linguistics as a human disciplines, here in this book, does not fully match with the mainstream representation as little has been discussed on the formal model theoretic linguistics, especially intricacies of analytical procedures, instead the book offers an 'other' linguistics, which, by forgetting its stipulated autonomy, takes its recourse to many other disciplines, viz., psychoanalysis, economics, sociology etc. and proposes a plurimethodical approach just like a bricoleur. Therefore, the readers, the new initiators in linguistics, who do not like to be a part of this 'other', must be cautious about this 'bad' text book (that does not help to pass exam) on 'other' linguistics.
