It felt like reading a popular science novel. I put down the book feeling enriched and pretty chuffed with myself for reading textbook. Feb 02, Rachael Johnson rated it it was aitchisin. I read this years ago as a text for my Linguistics major at university.
It was fascinating and by far my favourite area of the subject. I have often kept track of it and really wanted to fork out for my own up to date copy. Now that it has been significantly revised I’ve gone and purchased the latest version to check it out.

I can’t wait to read it again! It is so accessible jena doesn’t feel like a text at all. If you are at all into language then you will enjoy this.
A must read for every psychology enthusiast. Obviously it isn’t a swift read but would leave you an insightful person. So much for dinner-table conversations!!!
