Abstract:

Accessibly written, Writing Systems: A Linguistic Approach provides
detailed coverage of all major writing systems of historical or
structural significance with thorough discussion of structure,
history, and social context as well as important theoretical issues.
Discusses systems as diverse as Chinese, Greek, and Maya.

- Presents each system in light of four major aspects of writing:
history and development, internal structure, the relationship of
writing and language, and sociolinguistic aspects.

- Includes glossary of technical terms, extensive illustrations,
exercises and further reading suggestions to aid in teaching from the
book.
