Elsevier Science & Technology, 1994 - Langage et langues - Encyclopédies - 5644 pages
The Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics meets the need for a truly international work of reference and reviews current knowledge in the fields of linguistics and language studies. The work makes a systematic effort to take into account the many different views and perspectives encountered in research and thinking in the fields of linguistics and language studies, emphasizing the multidisciplinary nature of the subject. Alphabetically organized, the work consists of ten volumes, each of more than 500 large format pages, including an index volume which contains a contributor index, a three-level subject index, a systematic outline of the Encyclopedia , an article on the bibliographic sources of information in linguistics and language studies and a glossary of technical terms used in the field. In planning the presentation of the Encyclopedia the Editorial Board and the Publisher have considered the wide range of potential users, including not only specialist research workers but also those individuals and institutions in need of information in this diverse field.
