Abstract:

What do all human languages have in common and in what ways are they
different? How can language be used to trace different peoples and their past?
Are certain languages similar because of common descent or language contact?
Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, this textbook introduces readers
to the rich diversity of human languages, familiarizing students with the
variety and typology of languages around the world. Linguistic terms and
concepts are explained, in the text and in the glossary, and illustrated with
simple, accessible examples. Eighteen language maps and numerous language
family charts enable students to place a language geographically or
genealogically. A supporting website includes additional language maps and
sound recordings that can be used to illustrate the peculiarities of the sound
systems of various languages. 'Test yourself' questions throughout the book
make it easier for students to analyze data from unfamiliar languages.
