The Linguistics Encyclopedia is a single-volume Encyclopedia covering all major and subsidiary areas of linguistics and applied linguistics.
The seventy nine articles provide in-depth coverage of the topics and sub-topics of the field, extensively cross-referenced so the reader can see how areas interrelate.
Including a substantial introduction which provides a potted history of linguistics and suggestions for further reading, this is an indispensable reference tool for specialists and non-specialists alike. This new edition includes ten completely new articles, introducing new areas like slang language and new technologies.
Articles from the previous edition have also been thoroughly updated.
