[Corpora-List] Broader linguistic resources

Dear Dominic,

One of my favorite books is the following:


title={Linguistics: {A}n Introduction},

author={Radford, A. and Atkinson, M. and Britain, D. and Clahsen, H. and Spencer, A.},


publisher={Cambridge University Press} }

it's somewhat Chomsky-oriented, but still it strikes a good balance between theory and small details and it builds up from sounds to words to sentences.

Best wishes from His namesake, Noam Ordan
