Title: Just A Phrase I'm Going Through
Subtitle: My Life in Language
Written By: David Crystal
URL: http://routledge.com/9780415485746
Description:

Kidnapping, attempted assassination, espionage… not the answers you’d
expect to the question "What happens when you become a linguist?"

But now, reflecting on a long and hugely successful career at the forefront
of the field of English Language and Linguistics, David Crystal answers
this question and offers us a special look behind the scenes at the
adventures, rewards, challenges and pitfalls of his life in language.

Both an autobiography and a highly accessible introduction to the field of
linguistics, Just a Phrase I’m Going Through illuminates and entertains us
with its many insights into the ever-fascinating subject of language.

David Crystal is synonymous with language, both as a great populariser and
linguistic pioneer, and his contribution to the field is unparalleled. This
is a book not just for students and teachers but for all lovers of
language. For more about David Crystal at Routledge, visit:
