Can you please recommend a good book/textbook providing an
overview of several contemporary approaches to linguistic analysis
(such as, for example, cognitive grammar, construction grammar,
minimalist syntax, functional grammar/s, etc.) in one volume?
I need a textbook for teaching Modern Language Theory - a
concluding class of our undergraduate program. Students taking this
class usually have already taken 4-5 different courses in linguistics.
Our goal is to provide an overview of the present situation in the
discipline of linguistics - what schools of thought are active and how
their analyses are different. I have never found any single volume
describing several contemporary theories of language analysis and
used an assortment of articles instead.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, and I will post a summary of
