This textbook is a good basic introduction to the field of Linguistics. Most of the subfields of Linguistics are covered. The introductory passages for the separate chapters were well chosen for their diversity and humor. This textbook can be used as a textbook for undergraduate cl[censored] and as an introductory book for general. It doesn't have any chapter to skip, and is not too lengthy. I rented this rental textbook for a class and I've found it to be the most readable and practical linguistics textbook.
