Linguistics, Second Edition

An Introduction to Language and Communication

About the Author

The late Adrian Akmajian was Professor of Linguistics at the University of Arizona.


“"The second edition is more than a cosmetic revision of the first edition. The presentation is accessible and appealing, over a broad range of topics. Though the level is introductory, the text conveys a sense of why the study of language can be a serious and intellectually rewarding enterprise."”
James Harris, Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, MIT
“"If this is all the linguistics a student ever sees, he will have been well served, and if he goes on to further study, the groundwork will have been thoroughly laid."”
Moira Yip, Brandeis University
