Query:   I am planning to teach a course in which last-year undergraduates will
be assigned a research project. I am considering one book in

Projects in Linguistics: A Practical Guide to Researching
Language. (1988) Alison Wray, Kate Trott, and Aileen Bloomer,
eds. London: Arnold.

The publisher's web site for this book is quite detailed:

So far, I have found one bit of commentary about this book on Linguist:

I have also found several course syllabi on the web that highly
recommend the book. However, I have found no discussion of other books
in this category. Are there such publications? As I see it, this book
is very strong in areas of applied and experimental linguistics bu
quite skimpy in areas of linguistic theory; see the publisher's web
site for list of topics the book covers. (As a theorist, I could use
some help with things like statistics and sociolinguistics, so this
book happens to complement my interests nicely.) Before taking the
plunge, I thought I might ask you all about any other options. Any
comments would be appreciated, and I promise to post a summary.
