This book is intended for those college students who take an introductory course in linguistics. Simplicity of presentation has been sought, but not a false simplification of subject matter. Terminological innovations have been avoided as much as possible. Complete avoidance has been unattainable, because it is essential to discuss all aspects of the field in a consistent terminology, and no complete and consistent terminology has existed. Linguistics is too rich a field for adequate coverage of all topics in an elementary course. The decision concerning what to include and what to omit, however, rests properly with the instructor. The author therefore, tried to include adequate elementary treatment of all topics but two: the history of linguistics, and the detailed survey of the languages of the world. The omission reflects author own opinion that neither is a desirable topic in elementary course.
