This book is an introduction to historical linguistics - the study of language change over time. Written in an engaging style and illustrated with examples from a wide range of languages, the book covers the fundamental concepts of language change, methods for historical linguistics, linguistic reconstruction, sociolinguistic aspects of language change, language contact, the birth and death of languages, language and prehistory and the issue of very remote relations. A minimal knowledge of linguistic concepts is needed and the book is suitable for students approaching the subject for the first time. The exercises will be particularly useful to teachers and students alike.

Arador
McCool Miller does a good job expanding Trask's original textbook after the original author's death. The concepts are well explained in most cases, though there are a few times where things are left unclear. There are plenty examples, however, which usually makes the concepts understandable, if not super clear. The inclusion of Basque is also very interesting, since it's Trask's specialty and something you don't see often. There's also the inclusion of enough evidence from languages the reader will be more familiar about to make it more comprehensible.

A nice and informative book. Still haven't finished the book, but I am so excited having it. I like it.

This book offers a great introduction to the field of historical linguistics, divided into several fields of study (phonology, morphology, syntax), all exemplified with data from different languages (especially English and Basque). Definitely a recommendation for a beginning linguist!

The historical part was the best! I love it! The phonological section was a little bit harder to understand, unless you have previous phonology knowledge. Great book!
