I think you may be interested in the conversation I had with a reference librarian here yesterday. We are proposing to put webpages online directing beginning students to common linguistic resources. I want to have them available for students in my ling. classes. Right now, it would be helpful to know if other ling. profs have created such items or would be interested in contributing suggestions. Marie and I think of putting together beta-versions of the ff. during the Spring semester: Intro to Ling (intro books, tapes, videos, e-sources, etc., including library resources like LLBA) Intro to Dictionaries (standard, specialized, weird, online, etc.) Intro to Variation in English Intro to Variation in Other Languages Suggestions, references are most welcome.
