    an very inclusive introduction into the fields of linguistics, starts off with origins of language, aspects of language that is, phonetics phonology morphology, syntax and semantics, gives a wonderful basic explanation of the function of each and then goes on to the wonderful stuff of applied linguistics, discourse analysis, pragmatics, first language acquisition, second language, language change, sign language, sociolinguistics and language and culture regrettably no chapters on psycho lunguistics however over all a wonderful and fun guide on the many facets of linguistics and it s use as a tool to understand humanity.
