Read from April 25 to May 04, 2011

Carnie's style is great: This book is very pleasant to read and the concepts are very easy to grasp. As an outsider (I'm a functional typologist, so to speak), I just thought it was odd that, except for the exercises, English was ubiquitous. But, I guess that's true of most books on generative grammar...
