The book is a compilation of various articles regarding linguistics. It was used as a text for a course NMU offered in the past: LB 211 Language and Culture. The course’s main objective was to increase writing proficiency as a stimulus-response reaction upon the part of the student who had been merely exposed to the living world of languages, their dialects, slangs and jargon. It was a general study of the relationship between language and culture with particular emphasis on the origin and structure of the English language and applied linguistics. The text was designed to provide a structural unity to the course and help integrate lectures and films with the basic objective of the course.
