Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

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."

"An Introduction to Language" helps shape readers' understanding of what language "is," how it "works," and why it is both elegantly complex and yet essential to who we are. Presenting a scientific approach to language-in-use - investigated through wide-ranging examples from Old English to contemporary pop culture - it invites students to consider what qualities of language comprise everyday communication skills, be they sounds, words, phrases, or conversation. Providing an introductory tour of language variation, Hazen deconstructs the idea of 'right' and 'wrong' English, and explores the narrow interpretations society places on language. Each chapter features exercises that help students engage with key concepts and directly observe the patterns that are part of all human language, its social nuances, and inherent variation. Ideal for those coming to the subject for the first time, "An Introduction to Language" offers an engaging tour through the rich texture of language, and the ways in which we use and understand it today.
