O’Grady Contemporary Linguistic Analysis, 7e provides course solutions at every turn, in print and online, with enhanced content, student exercises, and instructor answer keys!Contemporary Linguistic Analysis offers students and instructors chapters written by the foremost leaders in the field. It provides an up-to-date introduction to the discipline of linguistics while at the same time providing coverage of phenomena that are of special interest and relevance to the linguistic situation in Canada. Using the generative paradigm, it offers an introduction to linguistic analysis as it is practised at this stage in the development of our discipline.

It provides what is promised by the title–an introductory text that provides a solid grounding in basic linguistic concepts, but one that also prepares the student to go on to current work in the discipline–by placing certain more advanced material on the Companion Website. The new edition will also feature an expanded student Study Guide containing a new Instructor Answer Key as requested almost unanimously by reviewers. The Companion Website is not included with the purchase of the CourseSmart eTextbook.
