How Languages Work An Introduction to Language and Linguistics 2nd Edition
Language is a sophisticated tool which we use to communicate in a multitude of ways. Updated and expanded in its second edition, this book introduces language and linguistics - presenting language in all its amazing complexity while systematically guiding you through the basics. The reader will emerge with an appreciation of the diversity of the world's languages, as well as a deeper understanding of the structure of human language, the ways it is used, and its broader social and cultural context. Part I is devoted to the nuts and bolts of language study - speech sounds, sound patterns, sentence structure, and meaning - and includes chapters dedicated to the functional aspects of language: discourse, prosody, pragmatics, and language contact. The fourteen language profiles included in Part II reveal the world's linguistic variety while expanding on the similarities and differences between languages. Using knowledge gained from Part I, the reader can explore how language functions when speakers use it in daily interaction. With a step-by-step approach that is reinforced with well-chosen illustrations, case studies, and study questions, readers will gain understanding and analytical skills that will only enrich their ongoing study of language and linguistics

Maintaining the structure and content of the first edition, this is a completely revised and updated edition that includes a new language profile (African-American English) as well as discussion of British English phonetics and phonology with accompanying online materials, and more examples from both English and other major languages
The second edition has a more streamlined design to better facilitate the flow of reading and understanding, including de-emphasising small box features and increasing emphasis on core content, as well as strengthened cross-referencing which better integrates the language profiles with the theory chapters
Contains in-book exercises in each of the primary chapters, and an extensively revised chapter on language and society, as well as increased information on data collection and research, and emphasized research methods
