Product Description


"I will say that I very much appreciate the Canadian content and bias.  It is great to be able to refer to the Phonetics chapter and know that the vowel sounds and examples will more or less correspond to those used by my students.  The Canadian content in Ch. 14 is great too."

---Julia Peters, Grant MacEwan College:


“The illustrations, diagrams, tables, etc., are superb throughout the text; I found them particularly useful in the discussion of phonetics, but they are a vital enrichment feature in every chapter.  The learning features generally I found to be excellent.”

---Annette Teffeteller at Concordia University


"I like CLA for its clarity, structured presentation of basic and contemporary materials and overall well selected exercises."

 ---Yanfeng Qu, Kwantlen University College

From the Back Cover

“We hope that our book will provide students not only with an initiation into the intricacies of scientific linguistic analysis, but also with a greater appreciation of the wonder of human language, the variety and complexity of its structure, and the subtlety of its use.”---from the Preface</PARA>

The study of linguistics transcends disciplinary boundaries--including the traditional boundary between the arts and sciences. Linguistics has been said to be “the most humanistic of the sciences and the most scientific of the humanities.” Contemporary Linguistic Analysis: An Introduction, Sixth Edition, continues to offer a superlative introduction to this multi-faceted field and the scientific methodology used. It includes phenomena that are of especially relevant to the linguistic situation in Canada, contemporary materials, and important new research. This edition also has a completely rewritten chapter on sociolinguistics.

Listen up, Students! On the Companion Website you will be able to hear pronunciations of the phonetic symbols used in this text and listen to exercises for transcription practice. Also included on the website are one  additional chapter and more advanced material.   You will need the access code bound inside this text to log on, or you can purchase the student access code card alone: ISBN 0-321-54084-0.

Also Available: Study Guide for the Sixth Edition (ISBN 978-0-321-50281-0). Written by Teresa Vanderweide, this helpful aid features a series of exercises designed to help you understand and retain the core concepts of the text.
