The book presents the fundamentals of Linguistics and the historical survey of languages to the reader without any complication and obscurity. It is a valuable book for students and scholars of linguistics.The author has followed the traditional order of presentation. He begins with the survey of languages of the world, proceeds with the study of phonetic structure, gramatical forms, syntax and morphology, each being the indispensable preliminary to the study of the ensuing one.

Review: Language

User Review  - Thom Dunn - Goodreads

A revised version of Introduction to the Study of Language, 1914. "The deep-rooted things about language, which mean most to all of us, are usually ignored in all but very advanced studies; this book tries to tell about them in simple terms and to show their bearing on human affairs.
