Beginning chapters of this volume define language and describe the sound, stress, and intonation systems of English. The body of the text explores extensively morphology, phonetics, phonemics, and the process of communication. Individual chapters detail such topics as morphemes, syntactic devices, grammatical systems, phonemic problems in language learning, phonemic analysis, and interpretations of English phonemes, as well as speech, writing systems, language classification, and language families. A selected and annotated bibliography concludes the book. (AF)
