Introductory texts often disparage folkbelief in contrast to scientific truth.

In fact, language is a ubiquitous topic of discussion and general concern of the folk. They talk about grammar, pronunciation, first and second language learning, language disabilities, dialects, gender and language, and a host of other topics. This book approaches such beliefs as one of most important aspects of ethnography. Surely what a people believe about their language is as important as any other key to an understanding of their culture.

This fascinating book investigates how non-linguists think and talk about language, an area overlooked by linguists, as the authors show.Joseph Salmons in: Diachronica
