An Introduction to Language Kindle º An Introduction

An Introduction to Language This is the perfect read for an introduction into linguistics, it has everything and so muchI ll need to re read it some other time because I skimmed through some parts real quick and didn t read properly through them.This is an all timer, good for everyone who wants to major in linguistics or even those who just wantinsight on the discipline. I read this book for the class The English Language, which was maybe the most generally interesting class I have ever taken This book is absolutely fascinating and very easy to read, especially considering that at times it s dealing with complicated ideas It covers everything from the basics of what makes up words and sounds to how children develop language to dialects and hispanic and black english It really will change the way you think about words and speaking. Oh my holy interesting Everything you ever wanted to know about language, and much, muchKeep in mind that this is a text book, so it s going to be dry But for a text book, it wasn t so bad If this is an area of interest to you, why not try looking up Steven Pinker s book The Language Instinct which paralled An Introduction to Language almost perfectly, yet was muchenjoyable Another book to check out is The Unfolding of Language by Guy Deutscher By far the most interesti Oh my holy interesting Everything you ever wanted to know about language, and much, muchKeep in mind that this is a text book, so it s going to be dry But for a text book, it wasn t so bad If this is an area of interest to you, why not try looking up Steven Pinker s book The Language Instinct which paralled An Introduction to Language almost perfectly, yet was muchenjoyable Another book to check out is The Unfolding of Language by Guy Deutscher By far the most interesting book I ve read on this subject, yet not comprehensive like the other two I had to buy this book for a linguistics course that I had to take way back when I started studying English at the University The linguistics course was extremely dull and one of the many reasons I decided to switch to another branch of study I never even started reading An Introduction to Language and it was stuck in a pile of educational books that I wanted to give to charity Since I am always having a hard time getting rid of books, I flicked through it one last time and thought Hmm, actu I had to buy this book for a linguistics course that I had to take way back when I started studying English at the University The linguistics course was extremely dull and one of the many reasons I decided to switch to another branch of study I never even started reading An Introduction to Language and it was stuck in a pile of educational books that I wanted to give to charity Since I am always having a hard time getting rid of books, I flicked through it one last time and thought Hmm, actually this sounds interesting Lucky for me that I did that, because I almost gave away a total gem of a book Yes, some chapters arethan challenging and I have to admit that I am happy that I don t really have to study it, but was able to read and enjoy it without the pressure of memorizing every information that went into this book Especially the chapters about Phonology and Phonemics and the ones about the structure of language are not an easy read Still, I thought they were extremely interesting Some chapters, especially the ones referring to computer electronics are way outdated now, but I guess that would be different withrecent editions I loved that the authors did their best to bring a little humor into sometimes very dry topics, this definitely helped to make the matterrelatable For a textbook, I m glad to say this was not terribly dry However, I feel that the book presents a limited view of current topics of interest For example, various contemporary linguists qualify or refute Chomsky s innateness hypothesis, yet this text presents the innateness hypothesis and Universal Grammar as virtually uncontested I understand that Chomsky s views are widely accepted by linguists, I just would prefer it if the text at least mentioned other viewpoints Especially since there h For a textbook, I m glad to say this was not terribly dry However, I feel that the book presents a limited view of current topics of interest For example, various contemporary linguists qualify or refute Chomsky s innateness hypothesis, yet this text presents the innateness hypothesis and Universal Grammar as virtually uncontested I understand that Chomsky s views are widely accepted by linguists, I just would prefer it if the text at least mentioned other viewpoints Especially since there have been so many in the last decade.Admittedly, there is a new edition of this book Hopefully the new edition addresses this issue One of my favourite college textbooks I lost my copy and had to buy another one, can t stand the fact that it does not exist in bookcase.
