Linguistic LingField(s):  Syntax

Query:   Dear Linguists,

Could I please hear some suggestions for an appropriate textbook for a
first-year linguistics course in syntax? The book should be an
introduction to syntax, preferably in the generative syntax framework,
and preferably with exercises. Some books that we have tried in the
past appear to be too advanced for this level. The continuing
students will be using books like Haegeman, so something leading up to
this would be good.

Thanks very much for your collective advice.

Linguistics and Mexico

I am an undergrad currently trying to find research on terms like
creoles, peninsulares, mestizo, campesino, etc. and how they affect
and structure relationships between Mexicans when used. I am also
looking for instances when the Mexican government or other
institutions have used these terms in legal documents to determine
land rights, etc. If anyone has references, advice, or experience in
this matter, please reply. Thank you!
