I've kept this book from my college days (and that was a very LONG time ago. It was, and is, a remarkably well-written book, and continues to be useful as a reference. I paid $19.15 in either 1979 or 1980; I'll bet it's quite a bit more now. It's still a great book. Read full review
Attending a college reputed as 'The Most Gruelling' in the US (Swarthmore College), grading a book as 5-Star means it was extremely helpful in traversing my path through a torrid and intense linguistic course. The examples, the illustrations, the quotations; they are all well chosen and convey vividly what language is, each in a unique way. An introduction to language is a book I would highly recommend to anyone who has a passion for linguistics or anyone who just wants to increase their knowledge about languauge.
