This is Chapter One in an introductory textbook for beginner students in linguistics called Human Language.
The full book introduces you to the structure and patterns of human language through a series of case studies--each study examining the sound system, history, dialects, writing system, and grammatical features of a particular language.
The first part of the book is a case study in the linguistic structure of English, and this first chapter introduces you to the full English consonant system. No background in linguistics is assumed or required for any part of the book.
