    An expert, accessible study, this book asks and answers fundamental questions about how language works, its regional variations, and its cultural and historical roles. The author relates linguistic issues to a broad spectrum of other areas, including the part played by language in the nature of thought and in artistic expression. No finer introduction to the subject exists, and this work's direct style and thought-provoking topics extend its appeal beyond the classroom.

SUBSTANTIAL FORECAST

by nuriact on Aug 27, 2009

Amazingly, Sapir, 100 years ago surveys over 20 different languages worldwide to make comparisons, taxonomies and forsee some marks in the evolution of the English language that one can appreciate they have become true after so many years. Impressive.
