International encyclopedia of linguisticsUser Review - Book Verdict
This updated and expanded edition of the ten-year-old International Encyclopedia of Linguistics remains an important scholarly source, with well-considered changes to William Bright's original work. There are 957 articles, about 15 percent of which are new to this edition, and all articles from the first edition have been updated. About three percent of the articles in the first edition have been removed, as has the glossary, whose loss is compensated for by careful definitions in entries, a more detailed index, and many more See and See also references in the index and the text. In addition, more short biographies have been added, most from the Concise Oxford Dictionary of Linguistics. A systematic outline (previously called a synoptic outline) and a directory of contributors remain as features. Although editor Frawley (anthropology & psychology, George Washington Univ.) states that one goal was to make the articles accessible to everyone, the language remains technical. This edition is intended to endure for a decade, so if your library found use for the first edition, you will want to replace it now. Recommended for all academic libraries.
