Linguistics
An Introduction
Andrew Radford, Martin Atkinson, David Britain, Harald Clahsen, and
Andrew Spencer

"This introduction, by some of the most distinguished linguists today,
should rapidly become the market leader. Instead of offering the usual
catalogue of unconnected topics, the authors of this introduction
cover each of the major areas of language - sounds, words and
sentences - from several viewpoints at once, which gives a unified
account of the field with unparalleled clarity and elegance. Each
section is complemented by exercises which are at once challenging,
illuminating and entertaining."
                               --Neil Smith, University College London

"A competent and well-focused introduction. Pays much attention to
grammar, sounds, and the lexicon, but is also very informative and
up-to-date about acquisition, disorders, and language as a social
institution. Recommended for both classroom use and for a general
readership."
                 --Jan G. Kooij, Leiden University

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.
