An Introduction to TPT-ians
This is a Practical Guide to the Study of Linguistics and Philology. Each essay of the e-book can be read separately or dipped into for information or guidance. In this first edition I’ve added some relevant topics of linguistics and philology. I’ve also tried to revise the topics according to its exam or teaching demands. I shall be happy if the e-book comes to help the students / teachers and the researchers for whom it is written.
