Abstract:

'This book is a beautifully organized, clear and readable introduction to
the field of linguistics.  The writing is lively and interesting, while at
the same time presenting complex and often technical ideas in a manner
that's both accurate and accessible.  Students brand new to the discipline
will enjoy reading this book, and linguists who teach introductory courses
will benefit from its clear and direct explanations.'

- Amy Fountain, Adjunct lecturer in the Department of Linguistics,
University of Arizona, USA

Understanding Language is an introduction to linguistics aimed at non-major
undergraduate students who are new to the subject. The book is
comprehensive in its coverage of the key areas of linguistics, yet explains
these in an easy to understand, jargon-free way. Pictures, jokes, diagrams,
tables and suggestions for further reading make this an accessible, student
friendly guide which should enable students to navigate this often
complicated area of study. Topics covered include language acquisition;
speech sounds; the make-up of words; grammar; meaning; communication; the
history of English; language variation and change.  This is an essential
introduction for any student taking linguistics at university, whether as
their main subject of study, as part of a general education course, or in
conjunction with related fields.
