Subject: Intro to Linguistics Workbook

John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of this
new textbook:

Source Book for Linguistics.
Third revised edition.
William Cowan and J. Rajusan Carleton University, Ottawa)
US & Canada: 1 55619 516 8 / USD 19.95 (Paperback)
Rest of world: 90 272 2162 6 / NLG 40.00 (Paperback)

This is a revised and expanded edition of Cowan and Raku\154an's
Source Book for Linguistics. In addition to the chapters on
Phonetics, Phonology, Phonological Alternations, Morphology,
Syntax, Sound Change and Historical Reconstruction, there are two
new chapters: one on Semantics and one on Grammatical and Lexical
Change. In addition, an index of the 93 languages and dialects
represented in the book has been added, as well as a revised
bibliography. The solutions to the exercises have also been revised
and expanded. The number of exercises has been increased from 333
to 472. New exercises have been added to most chapters, and many
exercises have been revised to focus on new issues in linguistics.
The text has been completely reset in high-quality letterpress,
with a wide range of phonetic symbols and diacritics. This newly
revised edition will continue to be useful as a teaching tool and a
source of examples in a variety of linguistic applications.

If you've been teaching upper-level undergraduate introductions to
linguistics without Cowan & Rakusan, then you've been scrambling
about in search of examples and exercises in phonetics, phonology,
morphology and syntax long enough. Order the Source Book; in the
long run, if it does for you what it did for me, you'll probably
wind up just dumping your traditional textbook order. (Lynn Eubank,
University of North Texas)
