KIRKUS REVIEW

A general introduction to language, this covers its forms and formation, history, distribution, cultural significance and practical usage. Dialects and slang as part of language in daily life, sounds, accents, development and the influences of migration, and on to sociological implications of language- all come in for a discussion in a book for a predictable, popular audience.
