Language and Linguistics: The Key Concepts Reviews

'This is a brilliant book. It combines the readability of Pinker with the breadth and erudition of Crystal, and deserves a place of honour as a summary of the best of twentieth-century linguistics - liberal, scholarly, forward-looking, undogmatic, sensible, practical and above all wide-ranging. Every linguist will be pleased... every student of linguistics will cling to it and love it.' - Richard Hudson, University College London, UK
