English Linguistics, An Introductory Reader.
Hungerford, Harold, Ed.; And Others
The readings in this volume have been selected for college level and graduate students in English who need an introduction to English linguistics which is neither too advanced or specialized, but has a broad range of interests. The editors (Harold Hungerford, Jay Robinson, and James Sledd) have prepared this anthology to use in their own teaching, in conjunction with a generative grammar. The first section, "Theories of Language and Languages: Some Grammars," contains selections by Edward Sapir, Goold Brown, Otto Jespersen, Henry Lee Smith, Jr., and Noam Chomsky. Authors of papers in Part II, "Dialectology," are Sapir, Elmer Bagby Atwood, Harold Orton, Uriel Weinreich, Sledd, and William Labov. Authors of papers in Part III, "Historical Linguistics," are Sapir, Winfred Lehmann, Paul Kiparsky, Leonard Bloomfield, Einar Haugen, and Stephen Ullmann. Each section is prefaced by an introduction by the editors; each selection is prefaced by a short biographical sketch of the author. Study questions follow each selection. (AMM)
