about 900 pages each, sold separately for Mac and Windows from New
Riders. Good section on Lingo by Gretchen Macdowell, with tips for both
beginners and advanced Liguists.

Riders / Macmillan Press. Decent for
beginners (once you get past the chapter explaining where scripts are located)
and intermediates with an occassional tip for the advanced Linguist.
- Lingo Workshop - John Thompson Hayden Books. Okay for beginners
and intermediates. No real meat for the advanced Linguist.
