A Concise Introduction to Linguistics book.

This reader-friendly and well-balanced overview of the field of introductory linguistics pays special attention to linguistic anthropology, revealing the main contributions of linguistics to the study of human communication and how issues of culture are relevant. Well-constructed exercises in every chapter allow students to practice concepts.

This new addition to the study of linguistics covers all topics integral to an understanding of introductory linguistics and is written with the generalist reader in mind but also provides the linguistics, English, and anthropology major with the resources needed to succeed in subsequent courses. The problem-centered approach includes well-constructed exercises and study questions integrated within each chapter. These short sections (usually 3-7 pages) in each chapter help students to understand each subject before moving on to the next. Numerous cross-cultural examples relevant to the topics covered are included, with specific chapters devoted to anthropological topics providing emphasis on fieldwork and the fronting of phonology.

No previous knowledge on the part of the reader is assumed and all concepts are explained in a systematic way aided by numerous pedagogical aids including Introductory Questions that give the reader a summary of the content of the chapter and provide questions to keep in mind as the student reads the chapter; chapter summaries that provide a concise overview of the contents of each chapter; key terms that are defined on the page where introduced; and an end-of-book glossary that provides a tool for readers to review all key terms together. Suggested readings and Internet resourses at the end of each chapter provide more sources for further reading.

Admittedly, there is not a current introduction to linguistics book that is satisfactory in all content areas. However, this book is more lacking than most. If you have to buy it for a class, I'm sorry. If you are a professor considering this text, please consider Language Files instead!

Poorly organized, unclear (or non-existent) examples, and conflicting notation regarding phonology (IPA versus USA).
Uscavel
Just as described!

This book, required for my introduction to linguistics class, is accessible and straightforward. It nicely overviews several linguistic areas. Each chapter builds off of each other with enough overlap to not feel confused or overwhelmed. I was disappointed in the Sign Language Chapter. I found it brief and oversimplified. But beyond that I have no complaints.

I have this for a class. It seems pretty good but the instructor also add materials from other textbooks she might have used in the past or just others with different material, so there might be more general content intro texts out there.

The text is as the title states. It offers an overview of the basics of linguistics in a very logical and easy-to-absorb format. Certain terms, however, could be explained a little more in depth, especially as it is intended for beginners in the field. The illustrations could also be explained a bit more clearly. Despite these shortcomings, the book is readable and stimulates thinking in a very interesting subject.

Great textbook
The book is exactly what I needed, and even though it was used it has very little markings in it, as advertised. I'm happy I purchased it here instead of paying $30 more at a bookstore.
