    The Introducing books are a fun series, like a mini version of all the college classes you wish you took back when you had the chance Available editions include Budha, Time, Foucault, Logic, Feminism the list goes on and on.My daughter bought me the linguistics book after I commented that I wished I d studie

    In general the book is interesting and sums up the most important facts Still, there are two downsides Firstly, some major linguistic terms and concepts are just left out Great Vowel Shift, Grimm s Law Secondly, the author is very biased towards Standard English, calling all dialect speakers uneducated I think that t

    Think a fun review of or introduction to linguistics, by no means is this comprehensive nor is it intended to be Rather, it briefly goes over the core ideas of linguistics I bought these for me to test out interest in several topics and found that these books are delightful They can be finished in a night and may be appropria

    Language sets us apart from other, non human animals, but exactly when or why we developed this abililty is still unknown and might never be known However, describing, how language works and what its functioning elements are is part of studying linguistics This short book explains basic theories and definitions of linguistics and presents important linguists lots of Chomsky, tbh

    Introducing series does a good job in explaining big subjects in simple ways Who doesn t want to understand in simple terms As I am really into Linguistics, I got this book I am fascinated by the different schools in Linguistics Something that caught my attention in the book, we learn rules of language, not the words Secondly, language could define our way of looking at reality for examp
