A LINGUISTICS READER.
WILSON, GRAHAM
THIS COLLECTION OF 36 ESSAYS BY SOME OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING LINGUISTS NOW WORKING IN THE UNITED STATES AND THE BRITISH ISLES PRESENTS A COMPOSITE PICTURE OF THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF MODERN LINGUISTICS. DESIGNED FOR A READING AUDIENCE OF FRESHMEN OR UPPER-DIVISION ENGLISH STUDENTS, FUTURE TEACHERS, OR THE LAYMAN INTERESTED IN LANGUAGE AND ITS WORKINGS, THE FIRST GROUP OF ESSAY TOPICS INCLUDES ASSUMPTIONS WHICH THE LINGUIST MAKES ABOUT LANGUAGE, AND SOME POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF LINGUISTICS TO THE TEACHING OF COMPOSITION AND LITERATURE. OTHER SECTIONS DEAL WITH "CORRECTNESS," LINGUISTIC CRITICISM, GRAMMAR, AND SUCH RELATED MATTERS AS SPELLING, DIALECTS, AND DICTIONARIES. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOLLOW MOST OF THE SELECTIONS. THE FOREWORD, WRITTEN BY PAUL ROBERTS, PROVIDES A BACKGROUND OF THE HISTORY OF LANGUAGE STUDY AND SOME OF THE MAIN PROBLEMS WITH WHICH LINGUISTS ARE CONCERNED TODAY. THIS VOLUME IS PUBLISHED BY HARPER AND ROW, PUBLISHERS, INC., 49 EAST 33RD STREET, NEW YORK, N.Y. 10016. ($5.50) (AMM)
