Description
This edition of Compendium of the World's Languages has been thoroughly revised to provide up-to-date and accurate descriptions of more than fifty individual languages. All cultural and historical notes as well as statistical data have been checked, updated and in many cases expanded. Drawing upon a wealth of recent developments and research in language typology and broadened availability of descriptive data, this new incarnation of Campbell's astounding work brings a much-loved survey emphatically into the twenty-first century.
. . . benefits from the frequent use it makes of appropriate historical material, which gives many obscure languages a place in time and space. One might buy the book for the information it contains, but it gives much pleasure also. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
This book will be a lifelong delight. ANTHONY BURGESS, OBSERVER
