Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is useful as first reference to a given language used in Europe. The information provided is accurate, well-organized, up-to-date, and occasionally includes maps. One can only hope that this book will become part of a series on languages of each continent. I would recommend this book for the libraries of high schools, colleges, and universities." Language

"An authoritative reference guide to all the languages of Europe." Translation Review

"The collection provides both depth and breadth in terms of coverage and range of materials employed. It would be almost impossible to give an impression of all the many fine features which it contains. It is a wonderful book to browse and dip into; the present reviewer was dazzled by its highly readable combination of erudition and approachability at one sitting. It will certainly stand as one of the major linguistic resources...Having read it, it is difficult to see how to do with out it." Linguist List

"The contributors to this volume have been selected for their detailed knowledge of the languages in question amd all the entries...display an ability to expound the relevant facts in clear and highly readable prose. I have already learnt a lot and I would think that anyone interested in the fascinating linguistic diversity of Europe would do so as well." MLR

"Fascinating reading! I am certainly going to keep the book very close to my desk for easy reference." Language Policy
