This hands-on workbook gives students practice in analyzing 30 natural languages from Akan and Arabic to Welsh and Yiddish, plus constructed languages like Klingon and Naavi. In addition, audio files on the accompanying website allow students to hear much of the foreign language data pronounced by native speakers. Exercises progress in level of challenge and are divided into English and non-English sections, while sample exercises and solutions in phonology and morphology give students additional practice. An answer key with extended discussions and pedagogical suggestions is available. Although developed to accompany Fineganas LANGUAGE: ITS STRUCTURE AND USE, it is an ideal companion to any linguistics textbook.
