A Guide to Understanding Language

by Geoffrey Finch, Martin Coyle, John Peck

Series: Macmillan Study Skills

Intended primarily for newcomers to the subject, but with new material designed to help the more advanced reader, How to Study Linguistics is written in a refreshing and engaging style. Ideal for those who are beginning linguistics, it assumes no prior knowledge and contains many useful suggestions for developing a secure understanding of the subject. Chapters discuss strategies for studying phonology, syntax and semantics, and for pursuing branches of linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, stylistics and psycholinguistics, as well as practical advice on writing essays. The book also includes a glossary to aid learning and revision.
