Laurie Bauer Explains all the things you felt you were expected to know about linguistics but were afraid to ask. Who are Burushaski and Miwok? What's the difference between paradigmatic and syntagmatic? What is a language? Do parenthetical and non-restrictive mean the same thing? A compendium of useful terms and tools, from the IPA chart to the Saussurean dichotomies, this book is an essential companion for anyone studying linguistics. Part reference work, part revision guide, it features tables that provide summary information on some 280 languages; the book is a valuable supplement to standard textbooks and glossaries.
