Abstract:

This second edition of "The Routledge Concise Compendium of the World's
Languages" has been completely revised to provide up-to-date and accurate
descriptions of a wide cross-section of natural-language systems. All
cultural and historical notes as well as statistical data for each language
have been checked, updated and in many cases expanded.

Now offering an even broader range of languages including a greater number
of the lesser-known ones, such as Cree, Maltese and Haitian Creole, this
new edition of "The Routledge Concise Compendium" covers a total of 111
languages.

Key features include:

*complete rewriting and systematization of the phonology sections for all
languages
*provision of IPA symbol grids arranged by articulatory feature and by
alphabetic resemblance to facilitate use of the new phonology sections
*expansion of morphology descriptions for all languages
*provision of new illustrative text samples
*addition of a glossary of technical terms
*comparative tables of the numerals 1-10 in all languages covered, and also
grouped by family
*classification by genetic relationship of all languages covered.

Using the wealth of recent developments and research in language typology
and broadened availability of descriptive data, this new incarnation of
"The Routledge Concise Compendium" brings a much-loved survey emphatically
into the twenty-first century for a new generation of readers.

"The Routledge Concise Compendium of the World's Languages" remains the
ideal compact reference for all interested linguistics and professionals alike.
