Book Description:

Completely revised and updated in its fifth edition, A Dictionary of Linguistics and Phonetics is the standard single-volume reference for its field. The fifth edition incorporates new words or senses that have developed in linguistics recently, based on recommendations by a team of experts in phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics and sociolinguistics. The dictionary now includes more than 5,000 terms, grouped into over 3,000 entries. The layout has been modified to increase the effectiveness of cross-referencing, all abbreviations have been included in a separate list at the beginning of the book, and a table of symbols has been added.
