The book deals with several topics about linguistics in a very clear way. The reading is easy; however, none of the concepts are deeply explained.

This is one of the most readable textbooks I've used. Linguistics is a complex subject and Yule breaks it down in a very informative and user-friendly way. I bought a used copy and it was in very good shape with no markings.

I think this book is excellent for those who recent emigrate to US and trying to learn English, because it has example of the correct position of the tongue to produce certain sounds, it is a phonetics book. i believe that all esol students should read it

This book breaks down the study of language from the beginning. Primitive Languages, Animal communication, God Given language, The First language, how language is produced/pronounced, etc. I learned so much about linguistics that you'll notice when you speak you'll have the knowledge of how and where language is produced.
