 Earlier this past Fall, I posted a request for ideas regarding books that
would make good "bed-time readings" for linguistics students; i.e. books about
language that are both interesting and easy to read with little or no
background in linguistics. I would like to sincerely thank each of the 57
people from all corners of this globe who contributed ideas. The large
response provided an eloquent demonstration of the great benefits of e-mail in
general and the LINGUIST net in particular! The people who responded were the
following (if I left you out, please let me know): Elyse Abraham, Varol Akman,
Celso Alvarez-Caccamo, Amy H. Anderson, Yoshi Asano, Denise Balason, Zev Bar-
Lev, Dario Barrera, Kathy Bell, Barbara Birch, Paul Black, Kersti Borjars,
Aaron Broadwell, John Coleman, Louise Cornelis, Tom Cravens, Brent Devos,
Ricardo Diaz, Ursula Doleschal, Dave Eddington, Ron Fein, Connor Ferris, Ed
Finegan, Nancy Frishberg, Peter Gebert, Inge Genee, David Gil, Randy Allen
Harris, Martin Haspelmath, Jane Hill, Greg Iverson, Frances Karttunen, Istvan
Kecskes, Paul Kershaw, John Kingston, Liesbeth Laport, Penny Lee, Judith Levi,
Jonathan Ludwig, Jeffrey McKeough, Ken Miner, Erika Mitchell, Leslie Morgan,
Karen Mullen, John O'Neil, Marc Picard, Ingo Plag, Massimo Poesio, Terry
Potter, Forrest Richey, Andy Rogers, Paul Rowlett, Steven Schaufele, Brian
Teaman, Theresa Tobin, Bill Turkel, and Graham Turner.

 The author-alphabetic listing below includes almost all items that have
been recommended to me. I decided not to include foreign language textbooks
since I felt they would not be appetizing enough for the weary undergrad about
to turn in for the night... I also left out some items on which I was unable
to find full bibliographic information. Some of you provided short content
characterizations; I omitted those for purposes of the list. Library
call numbers have also been omitted although ISBN numbers are provided in
those few cases where they were available. The references given to me have in
most - but not all - cases been re-checked and, if necessary, completed. I
apologize for any remaining errors.

 Items of the list vary in degree of difficulty as well as in subject
matter. I, for one, an planning to use it as a master list from which smaller,
topic-specific listings may be derived addressing the particular level and
interest of a given class or a given individual.
