Description - English Words by Heidi Harley

English Words is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the study of English words from a theoretically informed linguistic perspective, aimed at students with little or no background in linguistics. It introduces the technical study of words from relevant areas of linguistics: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, historical linguistics and psycholinguistics. Each section covers basic introductory material to give students the tools they will need to investigate the structure of the English vocabulary. English Words: A Linguistic Introduction gives students a command of the basic theory in each area, skill in analyzing and understanding English words, and the foundation needed for more advanced study in linguistic theory or lexicology.
