Notice: I quit linguistics some time ago, and now I'm cleaning out my library...

I offer two full crates of linguistic textbooks. Mostly functionalist linguistic theory, pragmatics and typology. Also a large collection of fairly recent Dutch dissertations.

Books won't be shipped, but are available for collection in Utrecht, Netherlands. For further details, drop me a line.
