An Introduction to Linguistic Science.
Sturtevant, Edgar H.
The basis for understanding the origin, development, and behavior of language is presented in this introduction to linguistic science. Aspects of language that link linguistics to anthropology, social studies, and mathematics are examined. Major emphasis is on phonetics and phonemics, historical considerations, vocabulary, and semantic change. Other sections clarify concepts of linguistic assimilation and dissimilation, analogic creation, and the comparative method. An index is provided. (RL)
