"Begining with a discussion of the 'atomic nature' of language, the author explains and examines the notion of the phoneme -- the smallest significant unit of sound within a language and the building block of words. He then presents a second fundamental linguistic notion of the phoneme -- the smallest meaningful element of a language, and goes on to consider rules of association, sturcture of phrases, clauses and sentences and the realm of grammar, the relation between thought and language, the relationship between a word (or symbol) and that for which it stands and the theory of meaning." from the jacket flap.
