Description
About the Book:

The book presents the fundamentals of Linguistics and the historical survey of languages to the reader without any complication and obscurity. It is a valuable book for students and scholars of linguistics.

The author has followed the traditional order of presentation. He begins with the survey of languages of the world, proceeds with the study of phonetic structure, grammatical forms, syntax and morphology, each being the indispensable preliminary to the study of the ensuing one.

The book is divided into 38 chapters which give a detailed and thorough knowledge of the subject on all important issues, such as analogic and semantic changes, Cultural, Intimate and Dialect Borrowings and scores of other points related to the subject. Of these Chapter 24 Semantic Change, and Chapter 25 Cultural Borrowings are much palatable. It is in these Chapters that the reader can get right away from the mechanics of language and follow the play of human mind.

The book is documented with notes, bibliography, table of Phonetic symbols and Index.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
