“The textbook is written in a clear, concise style which is accessible without compromising

detail or complexity. The focus on linguistic analysis and the development

of concepts with well defined criteria and diagnostics ensures that students who use

this book will have a strong understanding of the fundamental properties of the

tools of linguistic analysis. In short, this is an excellent introduction that can be read

with great profit by both instructors and students in linguistics.”
