Contrastive linguistics is a practice-oriented  linguistic approach that seeks to describe the differences and similarities between a pair of languages. Contrastive Linguistics, roughly defined as a subdiscipline of linguistics which is concerned with the comparison of two or more (subsystems of) languages, has long been associated primarily with language teaching. Apart from this applied aspect, however, it also has a strong theoretical purpose, contributing to our understanding of language typology and language universals. This book features the prospects and issues of contrastive linguistics.
