Linguistics falls in the gap between arts and science, on the edges of
which the most fascinating discoveries and the most important problems
are found. Beginning at the 'arts' end of the subject with the common
origins of languages, and finishing at the 'science' end with the
newest discoveries regarding language in the brain, this stimulating
guide covers all the major aspects of linguistics from a refreshing
and insightful angle.

Lingfield(s):	General Linguistics 			 

Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
