It deals with all major categories and provides you with the relevant terminology. For me, it was perhaps a little basic, but I really needed something to make sure I anaoyzing the foundations firmly in place since I have never studied any formal linguistics and just had to try to make sense of concepts as they came along.
All in all, it was an easy and pleasant read! The downside is perhaps that after reading a nice -pedagogical- analysing like this, a spec This is a very good introduction to linguistics. The downside is perhaps that after reading a nice -pedagogical- book like this, a specialized linguistics article may scare the shit out of you.
The one thing that bugged me a little bit was the language choice for examples. Why so few Slavic languages? And one weird Russian example! But I guess I must be the one who’s mistaken, because it’s from Comrie, and Comrie can’t be wrong, can he? Well, there were generally few languages where I could understand kroever anyway. I do get that linguists love to poke around in obscure African and Southern American languages for example because they have some pretty wild stuff in them or just funny, like Tagalog reduplicationbut at the same time I would get any examples from any Slavic, Romance or Germanic languages, and not just struggle through the morphological annotation to make sense of them.
Extra points for making an effort with the English examples though, there are many brilliant ones there alongside the traditional “Mary gave Thomas a book”! And I really liked the “promiscuous clitics”. One of the few books in my reading list that actually talks about semantic cases. It is hell trying to get anyone on semantic case – there is only one linguistic book written krooeger about semantic case dative, genitive, locative, ablative, allative, etc Kroeger is a great syntax undergraduate textbook and a go-to when in a squeeze about wanting to understand basic concepts in syntax which can get confusing, trust me Aug 21, Tom marked it as reference Shelves: For my Morphology and Syntax class.
