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, gramatical forms, syntax and morphology, each being the indispensable preliminary to the study of the ensuing one.
