As a student, I learned from version 9 of this book. As a first-time linguistics teacher, I used the most current edition, which at this time is 11. They've kept a lot of the fundamentals the same, reorganized some things, and of course updated the content with more contemporary concepts (the most obvious being the section on language and computers). For the first-time teacher, this book is perfect since you can pick and choose from the well-organized sections you want to address in your class. The accompanying exercises are great practice, both for in-class demonstration, and to assign as homework.

I teach linguistics and, therefore, have reviewed many linguistics textbooks. This one is by far the most comprehensive and student-friendly. The complexities of phonetics, morphology, syntax, etc. are relayed in accessible language with clear examples. The layout is well organized with multiple ways of finding the information that one might need (for example, look a word up in the glossary and get the "file" number for a more thorough explanation; need to quickly reference a phonetic symbol -- merely flip open the back of the book). Highly recommended for introduction to linguistics.

I'm not a student of Linguistics. I took an intro class for a GE and was required to purchase the book.

That said, it was excellent! The book's writing isn't too hard to swallow, and it's littered with useful examples and charts. I kept it after the class was over because I enjoyed the content so much, I felt like I would read it for fun!

Each topic keeps me interested with similar-to-real-life examples and graphics. The chapters (files) refer to other topics covered in previous ones, so the material stays fresh in mind. Makes linguistics a very appealing subject. However, it is a lot of information, with a bunch of vocabulary. Good thing my professor lets us have open book tests and quizzes. The size is nice. Thick but less than or about 9 inches long. Paid only $30, which I appreciate.

I bought it because I found the prize affordable and the deal (free shipping) incredible. Anyone studying in the field of Language and Linguistic won't be disappointed. Is not divided in chapters, but rather folios. So far is easy to read and understand and it has examples that go with the concept.

Everything you need as an inexperienced student of linguistics. The only issue I have with is that the answers to the practice exercises are not in the book and as a student it would be tremendously helpful to see the correct answers so that may self evaluate.

Exc. book.....The only thing that it needs to help those ESL learners is an answer key mainly because we students are not experts or linguists. so when solving the practices we would like to have a reference to see if what we are doing is correct or not.
