4.0 out of 5 stars A great companion to the study of the history of linguistics 30 Mar 2002
By Matthew D. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It was a required reading in my Hist. of Ling. course, but I would've read it on my own a couple times over anyway. Landmarks I&II are great additions to my linguistics library. Easy to follow commentary and summaries ~ not too much, not too little!
