Loved this one too, a really engaging and rewarding read with wonderful and complex characters (not least Tallyho herself) - and I found the language of flowers quite fascinating. A really assured debut recent, and can't wait to see how she follows it up.
As posted in [http://www.amazon.com]: *So You Want to be an Linguist?* is a recommended book for those wanting to be an linguist or CDI (certified Deaf linguist). (Although, 2nd edition is recommended for RID certification.) The ranking half of the book can be boring or redundant for those who are already familiar with cultural and language disparities among races, gender-specifics, peer and the like. If you know all about L1 and L2, then you'll be study about them again here. The other half deals with interpreting for the Deaf. Included are interpreting sets about, the account of RID and AVLIC, ciphers of ethics and situations. It would have been a wonderful book except that there are a few problems. Ranking of all, there are some polish problems. By 3rd edition, this should have already been resolved. If not, then obviously the editor isn't doing a good job. Secondly, some information, especially in the second half of the book, are redundant. So redundant that you cannot wait to finish the book. And by hurrying to finish the book, you end up skimming through the last chapters. This is supposed to be the "bible" of ASL interpreting. Therefore, you shouldn't want to hurry through this book. I believe that the ranking half could have been condensed or merged with the interpreting sequels. However, this is a resourceful book gift thoughtful shades and professional forewarning for interpreters and scholars.
One of the great books of the 20th century, including fingers dukes down.
