Abstract:

Most of the time we communicate using language without considering the 
complex activity we are undertaking, forming words and sentences in a split 
second. This book introduces the analysis of language structure, combining 
both description and theory within a single, practical text. It begins by examining 
words and parts of words, and then looks at how words work together to form 
sentences that communicate meaning. Sentence patterns across languages are 
also studied, looking at the similarities and the differences we find in how 
languages communicate meaning. The book also discusses how context can 
affect how we structure our sentences: the context of a particular language and 
its structures, the context of old and new information for us and our 
addressee(s), and the context of our culture.
