Abstract:
			
Folk knowledge of language has not engaged linguists very often in the
history of that field. Introductory texts often disparage folkbelief
in contrast to 'scientific truth.' In fact, language is a ubiquitous
topic of discussion and general concern of the folk. They talk about
grammar, pronunciation, first and second language learning, language
disabilities, dialects, gender and language, and a host of other
topics.  This book approaches such beliefs as one of most important
aspects of ethnography. Surely what a people believe about their
language is as important as any other key to an understanding of their
culture.

"This fascinating book investigates how non-linguists think and talk
about language, an area overlooked by linguists, as the authors show."
Joseph Salmons in Diachronica
