From the Inside Flap:

No ordinary dictionary, David Crystal's A Dictionary of Language includes not only descriptions of hundreds of languages literally from A to Z (Abkhaz to Zyryan) and definitions of literary and grammatical concepts, but also explanations of terms used in linguistics, language teaching, and speech pathology. If you are wondering how many people speak Macedonian, Malay, or Makua, or if you're curious about various theories of the origins of language, or if you were always unsure of the difference between structuralism, semiotics, and sociolinguistics, this superbly authoritative dictionary will answer all of your questions and hundreds of others.

About the Author:

David Crystal is a linguist, author, broadcaster and leading authority on language. He is the author of many books for Penguin including, in 1998, LANGUAGE PLAY. He is also the editor of THE CAMBRIDGE ENCYCLOPEDIA. He lives in Holyhead.
