Introducing Linguistics. A Graphic Guide

by R.L. Trask Author and Bill Mayblin Contributor

This illustrated guide looks at the science and study of language, our most basic and universal skill. As long as humans have been using language, we have used language to talk about language itself. Thinkers from Aristotle to Chomsky have focused on questions of lanugage, communication, and meaning, and this guide takes you on a journey through ancient and modern questions and theories about language. Presented in clear language with engaging illustrations.
