Editorial Reviews

"Fills a long-standing need for an intellectually solid survey of thought about language that bridges the divide between language philosophy and linguistics. Should be required reading in virtually any academic course, graduate or undergraduate, that deals to any extent with language."-Paul Hopper, Carnegie Mellon University, USA "An ideal introduction to the whole gamut of current linguistic ideas...The ideal introduction for a beginner to the basic issues.."-Ashish Mehta, Jawaharlal Nehru University of India
