Series Title: The World of Linguistics Volume 1
Description:

The Languages and Linguistics of Europe: A Comprehensive Guide is part of
the multi-volume reference work on the languages and linguistics of the
continents of the world. The book supplies profiles of the language families of
Europe, including the sign languages. It also discusses the areal typology,
paying attention to the Standard Average European, Balkan, Baltic and
Mediterranean convergence areas. Separate chapters deal with the old and new
minority languages and with non-standard varieties. A major focus is language
politics and policies, including discussions of the special status of English, the
relation between language and the church, language and the school, and
standardization. The history of European linguistics is another focus as is the
history of multilingual European 'empires' and their dissolution. The volume is
especially geared towards a graduate and advanced undergraduate readership.
It has been designed such that it can be used, as a whole or in parts, as a
textbook, the first of its kind, for graduate programmes with a focus on the
linguistic (and linguistics) landscape of Europe.
