May I suggest "Empires of the Word" if you haven't already read it? That and "Language Universals and Linguistic Typology" by Bernard Comrie are two books I love.
Thank you.

I have heard of Comrie, (So Cal) but I was in the field in the 70s when Lakoff, Ross, McCawley and Chomsky were reigning supreme. Their entries in Wiki are surprisingly pretty good. Generative syntax, phonology and semantics. My area was bilingualism, and we were all interested in universals. Haj Ross came up with some reasonable ones in syntactic structures. I'll check out Comrie's book. I still have friends who are into the field, particularly in ESL though.

I just now got a kindle sample of Ostler's book. Looks interesting.

Thanks. Yes. Been there via a google hit while researching the latest ICR nonsense over at ISF.

Welcome....

My rescue - old pic, he was pretty young and has filled out into a quite large cat, need to get a few new pictures. I don't think he will fit in his perch any more.

Love those face markings on him, Anjele. Here is a friend's new Oriental short hair.
