COMPENDIUM OF THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES
SECOND EDITION
Two Volume Set
George L. Campbell

For this second edition, Campbell has entirely revised his renowned
1991 work. The new Compendium presents a global array of over 300
languages, from familiar modern and ancient tongues, to exotic
isolates such as Etruscan and Tangut. Students, professional
linguists and general readers will find in this unique reference a
wealth of information on the structure, speakers and geography of
languages around the world. 

Key Features of the New Edition: 

* extensively updated information on native speaking populations and the
 impact of the past decade's geopolitical changes 
* over half of the articles have been comprehensively revised, with new 
 material and additional illustrative examples added 
* twenty entirely new entries on languages such as Comanche, Shona, the L� 
 language of southern Yunnan in China and numerous non-Roman scripts not 
 offered in the 1991 set 
* integrates the script tables from Campbell's popular Handbook of
 Scripts and Alphabets.
