Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I typed 'command -V time' and was said 'time is a shell keyword'. I had looked (bash man) under SHELL BUILTIN COMMANDS and did not find time. The only place I found it was in the definition of pipeline. Which now makes very good sense. Thanks for the list.
Thanks chrism01. That is the bad fortune with non-native English speakers in an English speaking forum. Everything has to be explained to us (and everything IS explained). Although there are native speakers who speak English very well. Not my case.
Now, I'll write in a linguistics forum to understand what druuna meant by his two cents.
