This review is from: The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language (Paperback)
David Crystal is highly regarded in the English language World, and this book refelcts that. As a first year A level student studying the subject i found this book great in detail and context. It can be used for study in a wide range of courses and degrees. The book isnt made to be read cover to cover and has easy to find sections on many aspects of the English Language from Basic grammar to Sociolinguistics. i would highly recommend this book for all types of people studying or taking an interest in english language.
