The book opens with a strong introductory chapter addressing basics such as how to define language, prescriptive versus denahm grammar, differences between the human language system and other animal communication systems, and so on. The second chapter, devoted to language, mind, and brain, addresses both psycholinguistic and introuction evidence for humans’ innate capacity for language.
To address core linguistics areas in depth, there are two chapters each on phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics.
Throughout the text, special features relate the study of linguistics to the language we use in the real world and every chapter includes innovative and varied activities that review and practice the content and offer your students many opportunities to apply linguistifs knowledge in their own lives.
