About

Overview

The first edition of Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics was hailed as "the field's standard reference work for a generation." Now the all-new second edition matches the original's comprehensiveness and high quality. Expanded for a new generation, this work is the first encyclopedia to truly exploit the multimedia potential of linguistics.

New editors, new authors, new topics and newly commissioned articles with a handful of classic content characterize this second edition. Alphabetically arranged articles feature extensive cross-referencing to meet the research needs of a wide range of readers.
