Introduction to Typology: The Unity and Diversity of Language
Anyone without a firm foundation in morphology, syntax and even phonetics will most likely find this book dull and completely confusing. I have no idea why my teacher assigned it to a largely non-linguistic major class, but this book was still more informative than that teacher. This really isn’t a bad book, but there are two other books that are much more up to date and suitable for undergrads: I’ve used the former as part of the reading material for a first year intro to linguistics class, and the students praised it for its clarity and overall excellence.
I intend to try out Moravcsik’s book next year. One person found this helpful.
This is indeed a great book, especially for those without a strong background in the field, yet it is not boring at all for the initiated. Very up to date, theoretically sound and pedagogically effective, I recommend it strongly for those interested in linguistic typology. See all 3 reviews.
