Rezensionen
'With a wide array of illustrative examples, accessible explanations, and engaging activities, Yule excels in transforming his readers' inherent familiarity with language into explicit knowledge of linguistic concepts. In its seventh edition, The Study of Language thus retains its status as the pre-eminent text for introducing students to language as a field of study and guiding them through a broad range of linguistic analyses.' Kristy Beers Fagersten, Södertörn University, Sweden
