The story of language by Mario Pei( Book )
166 editions published between 1949 and 1984 in 6 languages and held by 6,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The late Mario Pei was professor of comparative romance philology at Columbia University, and this book is still one of the few introductions to linguistics that is accessible by the layman. There's not much on Chomskyan transformational grammar and other very technical topics in linguistics, but that's okay, there is a lot to learn about the basic structure and nature of language before one should be tackling Chomsky. This includes basic concepts about grammar and the parts of speech, the basic principles of word morphology, phonetics, and phonology, language change and evolution, structural linguistics and de Saussure's important and influential ideas in the area, understanding the major language families and how they differ from each other, and the same for the individual languages in your own language group, and so on. -- from http://www.amazon.co.uk (Feb. 8, 2014)
