This best-selling introductory linguistics textbooks treats language as both a system (structure) and a social tool (use) - an approach that serves students in many disciplines, especially linguistics, English, speech communication, and education. Features such as a€œWhat Do You Think?a€ and a€œTry It Yourselfa€ prompt students to consider language in daily life and to begin thinking about language analysis, while new a€œLanguage at the Bara€ features show them the real-world applications of linguistic analysis to criminal and civil legal cases. The wide range of exercises includes a€œEspecially for Educators and Future Teachersa€ sections ideal for future educators, as well as a€œPractice Exercises, a€ a€œBased on English, a€ and end-of-chapter review sections. Based on sound scholarship and framed in a clear, friendly presentation, LANGUAGE: ITS STRUCTURE AND USE, Seventh Edition, helps students understand the uniquely human trait of language.
