5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book, September 22, 2000
This review is from: Linguistics: An Introduction to Linguistic Theory (Paperback)
This book is very helpful for people who are doing Linguistics for the first time. What is really amazing about this book is that its progressive, you can use it after you finish your undergraduate program. This book is very practical in its approach which makes learning linguistics an enjoyable experience. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in keeping a really great linguistic book in their personal library [or public library] and for anyone who has no clue about linguistics and is planning to either do a course or just for general knowledge.

This review is from: Linguistics: An Introduction to Linguistic Theory (Paperback)
I thought this book was very good. My friend who has a master's in linguistics recommended it to me for an overview of the field. Anyone wanting to know about linguistics should read this, but it is very academic for those of you who do not like reading textbooks.

This review is from: Linguistics: An Introduction to Linguistic Theory (Paperback)
Well worth the investment in time and money. Recommend taking Linguistics 101 using Ms Fromkin's earlier book on basic linguistics, co-written with Rodman. I've read this present book cover to cover and I will be going back and forth throughout its pages for a long time to come. It is readable. It provides very good explanations of works of such linguists as Chomsky; having read and found useful his works on syntax and the Lectures and suchlike, as well as works from Panini to Chomsky and beyond, I find it a pleasure to read this present work. With its index, notations and sidebars, it's a keeper. And this collection will point the reader in the right directions, and further, show what to look for. --- [signed] Old Linguist.

I ordered this book for class. There is only one edition so it was perfect! It is a must for linguistics majors. Also a good resource.
