This collection of essays includes topics from several areas of linguistics with special attention paid to the issue of language diversity, especially as confronted in the multilingual and multicultural southwestern United States. The first section contains essays on various topics ranging from the value of abstract syntax to "Homophones and the English Spelling System." The second section seeks to define the term "applied linguistics." The third section deals with pedagogy and classroom problems within the field of applied linguistics; issues include Spanish idioms, English adjective compounds, and new trends in language testing. The final section on sociolinguistics deals, for the most part, with language diversity especially as experienced in the Southwest United States. (VM)
