About the Series:
The Understanding Language series provides approachable yet authoritative introductions to major topics in linguistics. Ideal for students with little or no prior knowledge of linguistics, each book carefully explains the basics, emphasising the understanding of essential concepts rather than arguing for a particular theoretical position.
