Summary: An Introduction to Linguistics,2nd Edition (Paperback)

This compact and engagingly elegant text, now in its Second Edition, continues to provide a succinct introduction to Linguistics. The aim of the book is to introduce basic concepts in Linguistics, and to familiarize the students with the fundamentals of modern Linguistics in a clear and simple manner.

Each chapter is expository as well as explanatory with examples. Most of the examples in grammar and semantics are based on the structure of the English Language, but the principles of language study discussed in the text are applicable to any language in general.

Divided into three sections, Section I: The Study of Language; Section II: The Study of Grammar; and Section III: The Study of Semantics, each chapter, besides detailing with the concepts, contains Summary and Comprehensive Questions for better understanding of the subject and enhancing comprehension skills.

What’S New To This Edition:

  • An exclusive chapter on the Study of Language Variation (Chapter 5) with important terms such as Dialect, Accent and Stylistics.
  • More examples given in the grammar section.
  • Devotes an entire chapter to a new topic—Supra-sentential Grammar — a must for Linguistics study today.
  • Students of Linguistics and postgraduate students of English pursuing courses in Linguistics should find this text highly useful and a handy companion for their study.
