This book is a true classic, and anyone interested in linguistics and language should have a copy. It should be noted that since it was originally published in the 1930s, some of the information may be out of date, but most of it isn't. The field of linguistics has expanded since then, but this book is still very relevant, especially the parts relating to borrowing, language change, philology, etc. This book is also great in its scope. It's detailed and gives examples, but it reads well and gives a good introduction to a broad field.

i really enjoyed the book. It was most useful when I studied Linguistics. Eventhough it was a second hand book, it arrived on time and in excellent conditions.
