Abstract:

This is an authoritative reference guide to all the languages of
Europe, covering nearly three hundred languages and language
families. It focuses on extant languages but includes all languages
known to have been spoken in Europe in the past. Speech varieties
whose status as dialects rather than languages is a matter of debate
either have separate entries or are considered under other headings,
with appropriate cross references. The encyclopedia includes entries
on non-European languages now spoken by substantial communities in
Europe (such as Punjabi and Chinese in Britain and Arabic in France)
and on the major non-Latin alphabets used for the transcription of
European languages.

The aim of the book is to provide surveys of the origins, historical
development and, in the case of living languages, contemporary
position of each language. Bibliographical addenda to articles list
grammars, dictionaries, and works on historical and sociolinguistic
topics.

Written by an international team of scholars, many of them among the
foremost authorities in their field, the Encyclopedia of the Languages
of Europe is of interest to all those involved in the study of
language, linguistics or cultural history.
