Product description

Review

'David Crystal is phenomenal … (This) is a prodigious achievement … The book combines breadth of range, imaginative insight, deep understanding and … is pervasively readable and stimulating.' Lord Randolph Quirk

'David Crystal's scholarship is seemingly boundless, and faultless in every respect. The result is an awesome scholarly creation, very well suited to the learning styles of our times, and an extraordinary reference and lending bargain at its price of £17.95.' Reference Reviews

'The Cambridge Encyclopedia of English Language (is) perhaps the most brilliant book of the past ten years...what makes it most impressive is that this stupendous work of scholarship, which combines physiology, philology and literary criticism, is, unbelievably, the work of one sole author.' Globe and Mail

'A treasure trove of information.' Good Book Guide --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Superbly illustrated in colour throughout, this is the most comprehensive survey of the history, structure and worldwide use of English ever written. Clear and accessible, the book abounds with insights into how the language evolved and how it works. All aspects of English are systematically covered. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
