Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Linguistics offers a comprehensive introduction and reference point to the discipline of linguistics. This wide-ranging survey of the field brings together a range of perspectives, covering all the key areas of linguistics and drawing on interdisciplinary research in subjects such as anthropology, psychology and sociology.

The 36 chapters, written by specialists from around the world, provide:

  • an overview of each topic;
  • an introduction to current hypotheses and issues;
  • future trajectories;
  • suggestions for further reading.

With extensive coverage of both theoretical and applied linguistic topics, The Routledge Handbook of Linguistics is an indispensable resource for students and researchers working in this area.
