Some of you know that I’m a bit of a bibliophile. Some of you also know that I am pretty good at tracking the prices of excessively expensive monographs, patiently waiting, and then swiping up a good deal.
For example, I snatched up this pair of volumes for less than $40 for both of them:
Morphology: An International Handbook on Inflection and Word-Formation / Morphologie: Ein Internationales Handbuch Zur Flexion Und Wortbildung Volume 1
Morphology: An International Handbook on Inflection and Word-Formation / Morphologie: Ein Internationales Handbuch Zur Flexion Und Wortbildung Volume 2
That was a triumph. Granted that particular set is not quite as appealing to Greek students than linguists, but still.
Anyway, recently, I noted that this volume (which is usually $300+ even used) had some significantly cheaper copies available (~$50). I own the book already, but I thought others might be interested.
Tense and Aspect in the Languages of Europe (Empirical Approaches to Language Typology) edited by Östen Dahl
If you’re working on tense and aspect and are looking for a state of the art discussion of cross-linguistic and typological research on the topic, this is a good place to go. Just don’t be deceived by the “in the languages of Europe” part. The relevance of the research is much larger than that.
Anyway, just thought I’d pass that along.
