Abstract:

For the first time, The Future of Language brings together three of
Professor David Crystal's most popular lectures on the future of language.
One of the world's foremost experts on language and English language, and
arguably the most accessible and entertaining writer and lecturer in this
area, Crystal delivers these informative and highly enjoyable performance
lectures exploring key contemporary language issues: 'The Future of
Englishes', 'Language Death' and 'Internet Linguistics'.

An accompanying book with Crystal's commentary on the lectures is included
within the DVD package. This book supplements the lectures with a short
overview of the main themes discussed, followed by a more detailed
introduction to each topic and a synopsis of all the main points made in
each lecture. The book concludes with Crystal's reflections on how the
three interrelated topics covered here will continue to interact and
contribute to the evolution of language.

Special features:

- English subtitles
- A cultural and usage commentary with timecodes so users can easily access
points of interest
- Further reading and activities for the classroom - easy-to-follow tasks
to get students engaging with language straight away
- An index both for the DVD and the book so users can search for topics of
interest

This is an ideal resource for all university and A-level English Language
and Linguistics departments and will be of interest to anyone involved in
the study of language, especially those involved with teaching or learning
English as a second language.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any

that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
