CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Designed for those beginning to study linguistics, this is a lively
introduction to two key aspects of the structure of language: syntax (the
structure of sentences) and morphology (the structure of words). It shows
students in a step-by-step fashion how to analyze the syntax and morphology of
any language, by clearly describing the basic methods and techniques, and
providing almost 100 practical exercises based on data from a rich variety of
the world's languages. Written in an engaging style and complete with a
comprehensive glossary, Exploring Language Structure explains linguistic
concepts by using clear analogies from everyday life. It introduces a range of
essential topics in syntax and morphology, such as rules, categories, word
classes, grammatical relations, multi-clause constructions and typology.
Providing a solid foundation in morphology and syntax, this is the perfect
introductory text for beginning students, and will fully prepare them for more
advanced courses in linguistic analysis.
