George L. Campbell, BBC World Service, UK, COMPENDIUM OF THE
WORLD'S LANGUAGES, 2ND EDITION 2 Volume Set
		
"The most easily accessible and up-to-date guide to the
world's languages now available. The articles are concise
and scholarly yet readable...This masterful guide is
unlikely to be superseded soon in its balance between
comprehensive linguistic description and inclusiveness."
- Choice

"Recommended for academic and large public libraries."
- Library Journal

This 2nd Edition of George Campbell's astounding survey of
world languages has been thoroughly updated, revised, and
expanded. It presents a comprehensive cross-section of
languages, ranging from the familiar and well-documented to
the relatively obscure. Fifteen completely new entries on
languages such as Comanche, Shona, and Wotapuri have been
added to the more than 300 descriptions of the many forms
taken by human speech worldwide. Also included are numerous
articles on non-Roman scripts, not featured in the first
edition. Dead languages associated with the great cultures
of the past - Classical Chinese, Sanskrit, Classical Greek,
and Latin - are featured, as well as intriguing isolates
like Etruscan and Tangut.
