Title: Exploring Language Structure
Subtitle: A Student's Guide
Written By: Thomas E Payne
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=052185542X
Description:

Designed for those beginning to study linguistics, this is a lively
introduction to two key aspects of the structure of language: syntax (the
structure of sentences) and morphology (the structure of words). It shows
students in a step-by-step fashion how to analyze the syntax and morphology
of any language, by clearly describing the basic methods and techniques,
and providing almost 100 practical exercises based on data from a rich
variety of the world’s languages. Written in an engaging style and complete
with a comprehensive glossary, Exploring Language Structure explains
linguistic concepts by using clear analogies from everyday life. It
introduces a range of essential topics in syntax and morphology, such as
rules, categories, word classes, grammatical relations, multi-clause
constructions and typology. Providing a solid foundation in morphology and
syntax, this is the perfect introductory text for beginning students, and
will fully prepare them for more advanced courses in linguistic analysis.
