Issue no. 5 of the “Introductory Texts in Linguistics“ series.


The five texts of the “Introductory Texts in Linguistics“ series are intended to give a comprehensive overview of the main areas of linguistics—historically, methodologically, and theoretically—for use in linguistic pedagogy. Each volume covers a specific area of linguistic science—from the study of sound systems to the use of language in social and communicative contexts. They can be used individually or as a set for courses in linguistics or as a background referential source of ideas and research in the five areas that scholars can utilize. They are all written in an accessible style, so that they can be easily adopted in any type of introductory course.


Each text expounds and illustrates both traditional and contemporary approaches to the study of language. The titles of the five individual volumes are:

- Introduction to Phonology (Volume 1),

- Introduction to Morphology (Volume 2),

- Introduction to Syntax (Volume 3),

- Introduction to Semantics (Volume 4), and

- Introduction to Pragmatics (Volume 5).
