"Contemporary Linguisticsis a reader- and instructor-friendly book. It is well paced and clearly written, and each chapter ends with a concise summary of the material, up-to-date recommendations for further reading and an extensive set of exercises. The individual chapters are nicely linked, allowing the reader to integrate information that is presented in different contexts and parts of the book. An excellent primary textbook for beginning linguistics undergraduates; it will also be a useful reference work for more advanced students... Accessible and informative, with tried and tested sequencing of material." - Reviewed in Times Higher Education
