Introduction to Linguistics texts, written in English, that use European
language data. Thanks to all who responded.
Martin Weisser, of the Chemnitz University of Technology kindly sent the
following link, http://ell.phil.tu-chemnitz.de/intro/intro.html, to his
online materials, which he designed to be teacher moderated course
materials, but hopes to revise and turn into a book.
Elizabeth A. Martinez-Gibson, from the College of Charleston Department of
Hispanic Studies, suggested a text called Language Files, which does use
European languages data. It is from the Ohio State press.
Madalena Cruz-Ferreira wrote the following book, which she has used for
absolute beginner classes at university. It has European and other language
