The book includes coverage of key terms, a list of resources, and sections on:

history of research
methodology
phonology
morphology
grammatical categories
syntax
grammaticalization
semantics
etymology
language contact

Review:

"Advanced students of linguistics and practising linguists can read this book for both profit and enjoyment. The editors have assembled an impressive list of leading experts in each subfield, each contributing a chapter: together it makes for an interesting and informative read."
(Professor Sheila Embleton, Department of Languages, Literature & Linguistics, York University, Canada)

“Advanced students of linguistics and practising linguists can read this book for both profit and enjoyment. The editors have assembled an impressive list of leading experts in each subfield, each contributing a chapter: together it makes for an interesting and informative read."
(Sanford Lakoff)

As a practising historical linguist I found much of the book fascinating reading, as it took meInto methods and geographic regions of historical linguistics which I am less familiar with, and many of the chapters provided me with a pithy but informative overview of their respective fields. (Sanford Lakoff)
