Comprehensive but patchy editing
4 October 2018
I would have given an extra star for this but the editing is rather uneven. Kudos to the authors for writing in what is plainly not the first language of all of them - this leads to grammatical errors that lead to confusion. The editor was asleep at the wheel. Interestingly the print edition looks like a print of the electronic version with the clickable links (the references to the examples) printed in a slightly light grey typeface. The treatment of the subject is so thorough that I was left wondering what some of examples were trying to explain, before realising that the point of the example was banal in the extreme, but included for completeness. Complete examples are distinguished from extracts in the commentary by a thin border round each. All told, I'd probably recommend this book, but, then, I rarely recommend anything.
