Written By: David Nunan
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=0230008488
Description:

Language defines us as human beings. Despite this it remains an
inaccessible, even mysterious phenomenon to most of us. This book is a
lively and accessible introduction to the study of language by the world
renowned linguist David Nunan. Drawing on a wide range of anecdotes and
stories from personal experience, Nunan offers a thought-provoking and
entertaining way into the basics of language study. The book is framed with
student-friendly features including questions, further reading and a glossary
of linguistic terminology and key linguists.
