This Linguistic Primer is a basic introduction to linguistics for Malaysian especially those in tertiary academic institutions and teacher-training colleges. The writing and presentation style in purely academic in nature and aims to explain exhaustively the basic of linguistic elements, starting from phonetics through to pragmatics and the applied linguistics domains as well.
Authored by a Professor of Linguistics with her gleanings over the last thirty-five years as a pedagogue on all levels (from school to college and university), the book is the sum total of the author’s twenty-eight years of teaching Linguistics at the University of Malaya’s Faculty of Languages and Linguistics.
It is a “hallmark attempt… to whet the appetites of Malaysian students of Linguistic. With its clear and cohesive presentation of the essential elements of phonetics and linguistics,… it is a thorough and attractive introductory book for Malaysia.. and also for non – Malaysians seeking local examples from the Malaysian languages”. (Prof Richard Hudson, Professor of Linguistics, University College, London).
