Key topics in Linguistics


Our Key Topics books are published in series that focus on the seminal areas of study and research today. They consist of accessible yet challenging accounts of the most important issues to consider when examining natural languages. Some topics have been the subject of study for many years, and are here re-examined in the light of new developments in the field; others are issues of growing importance that have not so far been given a sustained treatment. Written by leading experts, our 'Key Topics' books are designed to be used on courses and in seminars, and many include features such as thought-provoking discussion points, useful suggestions for further reading and a helpful glossary.
