"Key Terms in Linguistics" explains the terms which students of linguistics and English language are likely to encounter during their undergraduate study. The book is organised according to the modules under which linguistics is studied, starting with explanations of the terms associated with the core areas of phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics and pragmatics. The book also looks at more specialised option courses, which may be taken in later years of study, including sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, applied linguistics, corpus linguistics and discourse analysis. The final section, 'Schools of Linguistics', outlines the major frameworks within which linguistics is studied and the main terms associated with each of them. The book also points readers towards further publications for more extensive exposition.Accessibly written, with complicated terms and concepts explained in an easy to understandable way, "Key Terms in Linguistics" is an essential resource for students of linguistics.
