Summary
 

This is one of the first books to address field language learning. It is written from a linguist's perspective. It includes principles of language learning and shows how these are implemented in a classroom setting, when learning from a private tutor or when learning from a native speaker "informant/guide". There is a section on phonetics and one on phonemics and syntax.

Evaluation
 

This book is now almost 40 years old, but contains some interesting insights.
