Linguistics is concerned with the nature of language and communication. It deals both with the study of particular languages, and the search for general properties common to all languages or large groups of languages. It also includes explorations into the nature of language variation, language change over time, how language is processed and stored in the brain, and how it is acquired by young children. This book introduces the key concepts of linguistics and applies these concepts to real-world settings.
