Format: Paperback
The title of this book makes a strong claim--that it is "the" book on generics. Luckily, the text backs up that claim. Beginning with a 100+ introduction to the topic by some of the biggest names in the field, the book continues with shorter articles on more specific topics. If you plan to do work in generics, "The Generic Book" is on your required reading list. One caveat--the authors assume a level of basic linguistics knowledge. If you have never studied semantics before, I suggest reading over an elementary text first, such as Heim and Kratzer's excellent "Semantics in Generative Grammar."
