David Crystal is Honorary Professor of Linguistics at the University of Bangor, Wales. He is the author of several benchmark reference volumes, including The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language (2009) and The Stories of English(2004).
"This is the standard, modestly priced, single-volume reference work for its esoteric fields. Essential stock in all libraries, at all levels; an invaluable text book for teacher and student; and another huge achievement for its distinguished progenitor!" (Reference Review, November 2009)
