With over 300 practical ideas for projects that can be used directly or adapted to suit different contexts and interests, and with chapters on how to reference and how to avoid plagiarism, Projects in Linguistics belongs on the bookshelf of every student studying language and linguistics. Aimed at undergraduates, it will also be invaluable to both pre-university and postgraduate students.
