Does anybody know who started the "structural restatements" which
the post-Bloomfieldians were famous for, structuralist reanalyses
of earlier descriptions of various languages?

Subject: Hmong language

 Can anyone recommend a good text or articles outlining the sound
system and syntax of Hmong? My interests are practicle in that I teach
Intro to Linguistics to prospective ESL teachers whose students will likely
include lots of Hmong. Consequently, I would like something descriptive as
opposed to theoretical, something that would provide grist for discussions
comparing the sound system and clausal structure of Hmong with those of
English.

 Thanks,

What additional sources can members of this list recommend that would
give an Introduction to General Linguistics (text: Fromkin and Rodman)
a clear humanities orientation?

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer
Hedy.
