The Cambridge Dictionary of Linguistics provides concise and clear definitions of all the terms any undergraduate or graduate student is likely to encounter in the study of linguistics and English language or in other degrees involving linguistics, such as modern languages, media studies and translation. lt covers the key areas of syntax, morphology, phonology, phonetics, semantics and pragmatics but also contains terms from discourse analysis, stylistics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics and corpus linguistics. It provides entries for 246 languages, including 'major' languages and languages regularly mentioned in research papers and textbooks. Features include cross-referencing between entries and extended entries on some terms. Where appropriate, entries contain illustrative examples from English and other languages and many provide etymologies bringing out the metaphors lying behind the technical terms.

Review:

'Just what any novice needs. The definitions are brilliantly clear, and the book's 3,000 entries cover the entire field from AAVE to Zapotec and from A-bar-binding to Zero morph.' Richard Hudson, University College London

'Nothing in the study of linguistics is more challenging than the mastery of its complex terminology. That's why every serious student of the subject should have a copy of this dictionary.' Heinz Giegerich, University of Edinburgh

'The most comprehensive glossary available for anyone with more than a passing interest in language. Concepts and terms from the major theoretical and methodological approaches to linguistics are covered with precision and clarity. Invaluable for teachers and students alike.' Miriam Meyerhoff, University of Auckland

'The Dictionary is admirably concise and comprehensive. The definitions are clear, carefully illustrated and cross-referenced, and the etymological information on the more opaque technical terms is a special bonus. This user-friendly reference tool will be welcome by all who like or dislike linguistic terminology.' Donka Minkova, University of California, Los Angeles

'... an impressive work which could become the first port of call for any beginning linguistics student.' Val Hamilton, Reference Reviews

Book Description:
