O’Grady and Archibald (eds.) Contemporary Linguistic Analysis: An Introduction. 8th Edition. Pearson. ISBN 978-0-13-404679-2 (loose leaf version, no companion website access code) or ISBN: 978-0-321-83615-1 (more expensive paperback version, no companion website access code.)

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
