Description:

The focus of this book is to provide an initiation to rigorous thinking about language form and language use. The main purpose of this book is two-fold: to acquaint you with the way in which linguists talk about the indispensable everyday tool constituted by language and to stir readers' curiousity about language matters and why language matters, beyond what this book has to offer.
