Review quote

"With the publication of the Second Edition of Linguistic Theory in America, Frederick Newmeyer continues to offer the field one of its clearest and most valuable explications. This volume's comprehensive coverage reviews the literature and places it within the dual perspective of the development of linguistic theory and the development of the academic field of linguistics." --WORD
