This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
"Third language acquisition and trilingualism have recently come more and more into the focus of applied linguistics. While the research trends of product-orientated bilingualism and process-orientated second language acquisition have tended to follow largely different tracks, third language acquisition and trilingualism are in much close contact. With its comprehensive multidimensional coverage of English as a third language in Europe the present volume provides a welcome contribution to a rapidly expanding field of research" -Hakan Ringbom, Abo Akademi University
