Overview

This is a revised and expanded edition of Cowan and Rakusan's Source Book for Linguistics. In addition to the chapters on Phonetics, Phonology, Phonological Alternations, Morphology, Syntax, Sound Change and Historical Reconstruction, there are two new chapters on Semantics and Grammatical and Lexical Change, plus an index of the 93 languages and dialects represented in the book and a revised bibliography. New exercises have been added to most chapters, and many exercises have been revised to focus on new issues in linguistics. Solutions can be found in a separate section. This new edition is an up-to-date teaching tool and a source of examples in a variety of linguistic applications.

Editorial Reviews

Lynn Eubank
If you’ve been teaching upper-level undergraduate introductions to linguistics without Cowan & Rakusan, then you’ve been scrambling about in search of examples and exercises in phonetics, phonology, morphology and syntax long enough. Order the Source Book; in the long run, if it does for you what it did for me, you’ll probably wind up just dumping your traditional textbook order.
