About the Author:

Edward Finegan (MA and PhD, Ohio University) specializes in sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, forensic linguistics, and the history and structure of the English language. He served as chair of the Department of Linguistics at USC and currently serves as director of USC's Center for Excellence in Teaching. President of the International Association of Forensic Linguists, Finegan is editor of DICTIONARIES: THE JOURNAL OF THE DICTIONARY SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA and has been Liberal Arts Fellow in Law and Linguistics, Harvard University; Visiting Professor at University of Zurich; and Visiting Scholar at University of Helsinki. He also served as Director of American Language Institute/National Iranian Radio and Television [1975-1976 in peaceful times]. He is the recipient of many teaching awards and honors.

Review:

"Though some other texts have tried to catch up, none has wooed me away through 20 years and five editions. Finegan has kept his finger on the pulse of linguistic research and presented it in an accessible and lively form for students. The chapter apparatus stimulates critical thinking skills, posing real-world linguistic questions to orient the student to the material in the upcoming chapter."

"Clear explanations, excellent charts, excellent exercises-- All sections are theoretically sophisticated yet approachable for beginning undergraduates."
