Editorial Reviews

Andrew Byrd
This book has something to offer every linguist who is interested in the diachronic aspects of language.
Marc Pierce
A particularly strong aspect of the book is the broad range of languages discussed, especially in the light of the overemphasis that is sometimes placed on Indo-European in historical linguistics.
