    Overpriced Reference Book That Will Contradict Your Professors, August 5, 2012

    This review is from: Language: Its Structure and Use (Paperback)

    This book was required for my introduction to linguistics class. I read it, only to have to relearn the information the way my professors know/practice it. Time and time again the techniques or theories in this book have been different from those in practice in my department (drawing trees for example). The vocabulary and terms are useful (hence two stars not one), but a linguistics dictionary is more comprehensive, much cheaper, and can be digested easier. If you absolutely must buy the book, buy the international version or a previous edition, or rent it. As a student, you’ll quickly out grow this book and will get more useful books as your education continues.

    My other introductory linguistics text was twice this size, and yet I didn’t feel like it said as much as this one does. I much prefer this text for intro linguistics. It’s easy to read and is concise, yet it gives a lot of information in a few pages. Great text!

    Had to order the book for a class and less expensive here than book stores. Came quickly and perfect condition.
