Linguistic LingField(s):  Semantics

Query:   Dear linguists --

I'll be teaching an introduction to lexical semantics at the graduate
level this spring semester, and I'm compiling a list of readings and texts
to choose from. There doesn't seem to be an appropriate textbook
available; I imagine I'm going to do a photocopied bulkpack of readings,
and I imagine I'll have them buy Levin's Verb Classes and Alternations for
source material (in English at least -- recommendations for sources for
other languages very welcome).
Can anyone supplement my imaginings with thoughts
and opinions about what materials are useful and appropriate --
particularly people who may have taught such a course before? I'll
summarize to the list if there's enough interest. I'll be teaching within
a Minimalish syntactic framework, although I'll certainly be using
materials from sources which are inimical to/incompatible with that type
of approach as well.
many thanks in advance,
