Language Matters by Laurie Bauer

Book Description

This book provides a non-technical introduction to the study of language. The core areas of language study are approached by focusing on questions such as: Where does language come from? Why don't we all talk the same? Who needs grammar? Pitched at a level which is suitable for students with no experience of linguistics, this lively introduction to language approaches will encourage students to think.
