So I registered for fall quarter classes a while ago and am currently in the process of buying my books. I am going to take linguistics 400 fall quarter. I looked on the Ubookstore's website and noticed that the price for that book is $80ish bucks. I looked on ebay and found the fifth edition of the book for $5...which is awesome :)
My question is, for those who have taken linguistics 400 in the past--can I get away with having the fifth edition of the textbook? I am asking this because i know that there is a newer 6th edition out there. I am just wondering if the fifth edition is any different from the sixth?
This is probably a really dumb question, but I just want to make sure that I am making the right decision buying this book. I'll go to the Ubookstore myself and ask if nobody can answer my question.
Thanks so much in advance. :)
