This third American edition of Contemporary Linguistics follows the third Canadian edition very closely. Both include a newly written chapter on second language acquisition and (for the first time) a chapter on psycholinguistics. The core chapters have been revised to reflect ongoing trends in linguistics. For example, lnfl is treated as the head of S in the syntax chapter. As in previous editions, some of the specifically Canadian factual material has been deleted or replaced (though not where a Canadian example serves its pedagogical purpose as well as another might), and some specifically American material has been added, especially in the chapter on language in social contexts, where American- dialects and social phenomena have been given center stage. I had hoped to be able to replace the chapter on Amerindian languages of Canada with a corresponding chapter on Amerindian languages of the United States, but time considerations prevented this and I have had to satisfy myself with an expanded section on the languages of the Americas in the chapter on language classification. The American edition continues to contain topical sections, labeled “For the Student Linguist,” written from a student’s perspective by Amy Schafer, a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts.
