Overview

The third edition of The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Linguistics is an authoritative and invaluable reference source covering every aspect of the wide-ranging field of linguistics. In 3,250 entries this dictionary spans grammar, phonetics, semantics, languages (spoken and written), dialects, and sociolinguistics. Clear examples - and diagrams where appropriate - help to convey the meanings of even the most technical terms. It also incorporates entries on key scholars of linguistics, both ancient and modern, summarizing their specialisms and achievements.

With existing entries thoroughly revised and updated, and the addition of 100 new entries, this new edition expands its coverage of semantics, as well as recently emerging terminology within, for example, syntactic theory and sociolinguistics.

I love the layout and overall content of the ebook. But I was very disappointed to find numerous missing characters/symbols. Apparently, the OCR program didn't recognize the characters and replaced them with a generic box. I brought this to B&N's attention. Their response: the publisher designed the ebook that way and B&N has no control over the format. Doesn't the published proof-read their ebooks? And, if they do, does the publisher simply consider the book to be good enough for ereaders? All those missing characters render the book marginally useful, at best. I certainly expect more from a reference book.
