This book provides a lively introduction to the study of language for students without prior experience in linguistics. It addresses the core areas of language study answering questions such as: * Where does language come from? * Why don't we all talk the same? * Who needs grammar? This is an excellent textbook for basic introductory courses and for students who are non-majors.  It will be accessible and enjoyable for a variety of students.
