A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Utilizing a historical and international approach, this valuable two-volume resource makes even the more complex linguistic issues understandable for the non-specialized reader. Containing over 500 alphabetically arranged entries and an expansive glossary by a team of international scholars, the Encyclopedia of Linguistics explores the varied perspectives, figures, and methodologies that make up the field.

From Booklist:

As the field of linguistics (the study of human speech) expands, overlaps, and uses the methods and findings of other disciplines, the reference literature needs to reflect these changes. In addition to the expected entries on linguistics as a discipline and the essays about specific languages and their characteristics, this encyclopedia covers topics such as Information retrieval; Neurolinguistics; Second language: learning; and Official language selection. The intent is to provide "an accessible overview of and introduction to the multiple facets of the study of language."

The 508 signed entries, between 1,000 and 3,000 words long, are arranged alphabetically and fall into four categories. Around 50 percent cover linguistic topics, such as Biosemiotics, Dyslexia, Gender and language, Phonetics, and Time and tense. Some 30 percent treat languages, among them Ancient Egyptian, Igbo and Igboid languages, Japanese, and yiddish. Another 15 percent cover people, for example, Franz Boas, Noam Chomsky, and Jacob Grimm. The remaining entries cover regions. An alphabetical and a thematic list of entries at the beginning of volume 1 are useful finding aids. Illustrations are restricted to figures and tables. The introduction notes the inclusion of 12 language-distribution maps, but we could not find them.

The International Encyclopedia of Linguistics (2d ed., Oxford, 2003), which is the standard scholarly reference in the field, has approximately 750 entries. A less-comprehensive title, the single-volume Linguistics Encyclopedia (Routledge, 1991) has 150 entries.

With the number of languages spoken in the U.S. increasing, the language descriptions found here, in addition to explanations of standard linguistic terminology, make this a recommended addition to academic and large public libraries. It complements other linguistics encyclopedias that a library may already own and can be a good first purchase for those with no holdings in the area. Linda Loos Scarth
