Mini-explorations of Language
Aiming to offer a brief and engaging introduction to language and targeting the general public who is interested in linguistics, this book briefly expounds the theoretical conceptions in linguistics based on the phenomena of language observed by the authors. Topics focussing on language are covered, including a brief survey of language, the sounding of language, the wording of language, and the meaning of language. Through this book, we also attempt to document and summarize Christian M.I.M. Matthiessen’s various insights on language and linguistics.
