Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The new edition (previous eds.: 1980 & 1985) adds around 300 new words or senses (a 20% increase) which have developed in linguistics during the 1980s, chiefly in relation to the newer models of linguistic theory, including a full account of the terminology of government- binding theory. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"What we have here are definitions and explanations covering the main areas of twentieth-century linguistic thought, presented in language as clear and elegant as one could hope for…Probably the work’s outstanding quality – certainly the most useful to its readers – is its resolute fair-mindedness." Times Literary Supplement

"Deserves a place on the bookshelf of scholar and beginning student alike." Year's Work in English Studies

"Crystal's linguistic dictionary is not only the most comprehensive of today, but also the most up-to-date presentation of the entire field of modern linguistics...highly recommended to students and teachers of theoretical and general linguistics as well as to those of English, German, Romance or other languages."
