The top of the utensil pyramid


Thanks to all who commented regarding good linguistics programs in the US. I really appreciate it--I feel so loved!

Now, I have what may be (although I hope not)  a slightly more contentious question: what books would you recommend to someone with a fair amount of background in languages (Latin, German, French, a smidgen of ancient Greek), but little in linguistics itself? I love to read, and I want to be informed before I commit myself 100% to this major, plus I'd like to have a leg up when I really get into my core classes.

Also, I'd like to start at least one other language before I leave school--any recommendations? I'm considering either Russian or an Asian language. I want to be as well-rounded as possible.
