'With a wide array of illustrative examples, accessible explanations, and engaging activities, Yule excels in transforming his readers' inherent familiarity with language into explicit knowledge of linguistic concepts. In its seventh edition, The Study of Language thus retains its status as the pre-eminent text for introducing students to language as a field of study and guiding them through a broad range of linguistic analyses.' Kristy Beers Fagersten, Sdertrn University, Sweden

'The Study of Language provides a solid overview of an impressively wide range of areas in linguistics, not only 'core' areas such as syntax and phonology, but also the origins of language, pragmatics, discourse analysis, historical linguistics and more. Each chapter succeeds in providing a thorough overview of its topic while remaining at a level appropriate to newcomers in the field. The book is written in a style accessible even to non-native English speakers. A great book for introductory undergraduate linguistics classes. The study questions and tasks at the end of each chapter are engaging and the discussion topics/projects are designed to push students beyond the material, and to use their own experiences and analytical skills to think about language.' Kathleen O'Connor, Universit Charles-de-Gaulle Lille III

'... the 7th edition of The Study of Language continues the charm of Yule's introductory method for student and instructor, offering intellectually manageable chunks of information to first-time learners of linguistics, with ample space for elaboration and practice in the classroom.' Aaron Smith, Illinois State University

'In this beautifully exemplified and coherently structured book, Yule guides readers through the various aspects of language study. This is an ideal introduction to linguistics for students and practitioners with a general interest in language. This edition is enriched with study questions and tasks which will be particularly useful to readers.' Sofia Lampropoulou, University of Liverpool

'... an impeccably organized introduction to linguistics.' Geraldine Bard, Buffalo State College, State University of New York

'My students continue to rate this text highly for its depth, creativity, and accessibility. In my opinion, The Study of Language ought to be required reading for education majors and pre-service teachers; indeed, for any student who wishes to effectively use language as a tool in their profession.' Thomas Hunter, Martin Luther College, Minnesota

'This is unequivocally a best-selling, internationally acclaimed book that has proven to be ideal for beginners when it comes to an introduction to linguistics. Given the fact that this is the 7th edition of the book, it is clear it has impressed many minds across the world and will continue to shed light onto linguistics and inspiring more and more generations of students.' Claudia Sanchez, LINGUIST List

'This book is a textbook for intro...
