The book we used in our first descriptive linguistics class in Leyden=20 was D=FCrr, Michael and Peter Schlobinski. 1990. _Einf=FChrung in die deskriptive Linguistik_. Opladen: Westdeutscher Verlag. It's similarly priced to TYL, I think - German books are often remarkably cheap, especially if you count Reklam in! It's a good book, but won't help someone who wants to discuss linguistics in English a whole lot. Boudewijn Rempt |
