I. Facts and fantasies about language : the importance of language, its intricacies, and some other myths and misconceptions unraveled -- II. The beginnings of language : an insight into past theories of language origin and the research being done to come to some conclusions about its origin -- III. Languages and more languages: a tour : mapping and comparing the many languages of the world, including Indo-European and other language families -- IV. Winds of change: the new linguistics : tradition vs change; grammar viewed through a traditional, structuralist, and generative-transformational perspective -- V. Phonology: a sign of structure : a comprehensive exploration of language sounds and their distribution: phonemes, morphemes, consonants, vowels, and semivowels -- VI. Morphology and syntax: more signs : a discussion, viewed through a variety of models, of the two systems which, together with semantics, form the grammar of a language -- VII. Semantics: the study of meaning : some inadequacies associated with human communication, including a discussion of standard theory and generative semantics -- VIII. Writing systems of the world a tour of orthographies around the globe, including Semitic, Cyrillic, Sanskrit, and Runes, and a discussion of picture-writing systems -- IX. Other systems of communication : non-verbal expression through a variety of systems: gestures, body language, kinesics, and code -- X. One language for the world? an exploration of man's constant quest to break the language barrier, and some possibilities for a new universal tongue -- XI. Implications and applications: social, political, and educational consequences : the consequences of linguistic nationalism around the world, and a discussion of first-language teaching in the United States today -- XII. Second language learning and teaching: gaps in a crucial area : an historical account of second-language teaching in the United States, its present status, and some conclusions as to future prospects -- XIII. The X, Y, Z's of language learning: bilingual and second language education : a practical combination of linguistics, psychology, and teaching techniques for increased language learning motivation and competency, now and in the years ahead
