Abstract:

Designed for beginners, this best-selling textbook provides a thorough
introduction to the study of language. It introduces the analysis of the
key elements of language--sounds, words, structures and meanings, and
provides a solid foundation in all of the essential topics. The third
edition has been extensively revised to include new sections on important
contemporary issues in language study, including language and culture,
African American English, sign language, and slang. A comprehensive
glossary provides useful explanations of technical terms, and each chapter
contains a range of new study questions and research tasks, with suggested
answers.
