Book Review

This book has become a publishing phenomenon, popular with language-lovers, writers, students, and teachers. It has a vast content of thoroughly researched, impeccably presented, and well-organised material. The content of every page is illustrated in full colour with appropriate photographs, tables, charts, maps, graphs, and diagrams, making the book easy to read. Crystal covers everything from the history of English, vocabulary, and grammar, to spoken and written English, and English in use. This volume will appeal to almost anyone with either a professional or recreational interest in language, words, linguistics, and related areas. The plentiful visual aids combine with anecdotes, quotations, and well written text to produce a highly accessible and truly stimulating textbook. There is simply not a bad word to be said about it. (Hardcover edition.)
