Advance praise: 'Just what any novice needs. The definitions are brilliantly clear, and the book's 3,000 entries cover the entire field from AAVE to Zapotec and from A-bar-binding to Zero morph.' Richard Hudson, University College London

Advance praise: 'Nothing in the study of linguistics is more challenging than the mastery of its complex terminology. That's why every serious student of the subject should have a copy of this dictionary.' Heinz Giegerich, University of Edinburgh

Advance praise: 'The most comprehensive glossary available for anyone with more than a passing interest in language. Concepts and terms from the major theoretical and methodological approaches to linguistics are covered with precision and clarity. Invaluable for teachers and students alike.' Miriam Meyerhoff, University of Auckland

Advance praise: 'The Dictionary is admirably concise and comprehensive. The definitions are clear, carefully illustrated and cross-referenced, and the etymological information on the more opaque technical terms is a special bonus. This user-friendly reference tool will be welcome by all who like or dislike linguistic terminology.' Donka Minkova, University of California, Los Angeles
