Book Review

This title comes from the popular Introducing series famous for its unique use of visual material to present often quite difficult subjects in an understandable way. Cartoon-style graphics combine with charts, photographs, speech bubbles, and chunks of text to introduce the basic ideas in linguistics in a very digestible form. Introducing Linguistics will be ideal for anyone starting a course in the subject, or considering doing so. With fewer than 180 pages, this book does not take long to read. But its brevity is a virtue, for its accessible, visual style is aimed at readers with little or no knowledge of the subject. If you don't know what linguistics is or would like to find out which areas interest you most, then this would be a great place to start.
