This is a fac simile edition of Bloomfield's An Introduction to the Study of Language (New York 1914), with an introductory article by Joseph S. Kess. Leonard Bloomfield (1887-1949) was responsible for two classic textbooks in the field of linguistics. The earlier, reproduced here, shows some striking differences to his later views, reflecting much of the then-current thinking on language matters. As such, it represents not only an interesting commentary on the theoretical development of an extremely influential linguist, but more importantly, it is a telling document in the evolving history of the discipline and a rich source for the (psycho)linguist interested in how and why we got from where we were to where we are.

This is without doubt the most important book ever written on the subject of Language and Linguistics. It is a basic book, covering all the then known branches of the large field. It is therefore must reading for anybody interested in a deep study of languages. This is a book which is basic in its subject and popular enough to be of interest to the general reader. The psychological and formal characteristics of speech are carefully established and after studying the historical factors that have molded it the author has devoted his last chapters to the wider bearings of linguistic science and to furnishing a clear understanding as the ever changing instruments of our emotions and mental activity. "This book of Mr. Sapir's distinguishes itself from other general treatment of the problems of linguistics by its power to stimulate thoughts about the subject. There is nothing trite or matter-of-fact between the covers. The discussions sporing from an unusually wide acquaintance with language in all its varieties and a scholarly understanding of the principles of psychology underlying expression. But, more than by its learning, the book impresses us by its quick insight and acute analysis. A capital illustration is the treatment of the problem of classifying languages. . . . There is also a great deal that is suggestive in what the writer has said about the process in phonetic change. Especially noteworthy in this connection is the emphasis he places on what he calls 'patterning'. . . . Closely related to patterning is the discussion of 'drift', the idea that changes in language are not random but move in a definite direction. . . . A gratifying feature, not unusual in books of this class is a chapter showing the dependence of literary style on the phonetic and formal characteristics of a language."

Sociolinguistics is the study of the interaction between language and society. In this classic introductory work, Janet Holmes examines the role of language in a variety of social contexts and considers both how language works and how it can be used to signal and interpret various aspects of social identity. Written with Holmes' customary enthusiasm, the book is divided into three sections which explain basic sociolinguistic concepts in the light of both classic approaches and the most recent research. This third edition has been updated thoroughly and new examples have been added to enhance understanding. A major addition to this edition is an extended chapter on discourse analysis which outlines a number of different approaches to analysing spoken language in its social context. Supported throughout by a range of exercises and suggestions for further reading, An Introduction to Sociolinguistics is an essential introductory text for all students of sociolinguistics and a splendid point of reference for students of applied linguistics. It is also an accessible guide for those who are simply interested in language and the uses we put it to.

Language An Introduction to the Study of Speech: Large Print By Edward Sapir Speech is so familiar a feature of daily life that we rarely pause to define it. It seems as natural to man as walking, and only less so than breathing. Yet it needs but a moment's reflection to convince us that this naturalness of speech is but an illusory feeling. The process of acquiring speech is, in sober fact, an utterly different sort of thing from the process of learning to walk. In the case of the latter function, culture, in other words, the traditional body of social usage, is not seriously brought into play. The child is individually equipped, by the complex set of factors that we term biological heredity, to make all the needed muscular and nervous adjustments that result in walking. Indeed, the very conformation of these muscles and of the appropriate parts of the nervous system may be said to be primarily adapted to the movements made in walking and in similar activities. In a very real sense the normal human being is predestined to walk, not because his elders will assist him to learn the art, but because his organism is prepared from birth, or even from the moment of conception, to take on all those expenditures of nervous energy and all those muscular adaptations that result in walking. To put it concisely, walking is an inherent, biological function of man. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

An important new text on phonetics which is studied on the majority of linguistic undergraduate degree courses. Also relevant for speech pathology courses and for students of English as a second language. 'The Sounds of Language' provides an accessible, general introduction to phonetics with a special emphasis on English. Phonetics is the study of sounds used in language: how the sounds are produced, how they are transferred from the speaker to the hearer and how they are heard and perceived.
