This comprehensive introduction to linguistics is unique in its integration of variation and change with the more structural or synchronic topics. It includes chapters on variation and change in lexicon, phonology, and syntax. It also covers topics on pidgins and creoles, first and second language acquisition, development of language in the human species, growth of writing and printing in information technology, and how these have affected, and continue to affect, language.
