Date: Mon, 8 May 1995 17:34:22 EST From: Beth Lee Simon Subject: textbook question Wayne, 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. beth
