THE BOOKS FALL INTO TWO DICHOTOMIES: TRANSLATIONS, AND TEXTS ORIGINAL TO THE LANGUAGE, ON ONE HAND; AND ON THE OTHER, THEY ARE EITHER GENERAL SURVEYS, OR LANGUAGE-/REGION-SPECIFIC TREATMENTS.

I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECEIVE ADDITIONS TO THIS LIST, AND -- MORE IMPORTANTLY -- BRIEF EVALUATIONS OF THEIR USEFULNESS, ESP. BY SOMEONE WHO HAS USED ANY OF THEM TO TEACH. REFERENCES TO BOOK REVIEWS IN ENGLISH LINGUISTICS JOURNALS WOULD ALSO BE WELCOME.
