Book Review #1059
Language Matters by Donna Jo Napoli and Vera Lee- Schoenfeld
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This was an interesting book of essays about linguistics and language. I thought most of the chapters were relevant and anybody could pick it up and read it without knowing a lot about linguistics and still understand the concepts. This was one of my textbooks for my linguistic course. There were a couple of chapters that I didn't agree with, but those were more along the lines of moral issues than linguistic issues.
