Subject: textbook question
I much prefer Finegan 2nd edition. Also, some of the exercises in
the workbook have been very suitable for my classes. The ones in
the textbook are not particularly useful.
Both my colleague here and I have tried Introductory Readings, but,
while we each like it, think it a superb collection, the students
didn't read much in it.
We're a state u campus, no prerequisite for the course.
I used OH State Lang Files for an upper division Intro to Ling Analysis,
and a grad level Intro to Ling Theory. Only two students had had any
linguistics prior to these courses, and the Lnag Files were perfect,
but I suspect it isn't as suitable for the true introductory course.
