The Oxford Companion to the English Language provides an authoritative single-volume source of information about the English language. It is intended both for reference and for browsing. The first edition of this landmark Companion, published in 1998, adopted a strong internationalperspective, covering topics from Cockney to Creole, Aboriginal English to Caribbean English and a historical range from Chaucer to Chomsky, Latin to the World Wide Web. It succinctly described and discussed the English language at the end of the twentieth century, including its distribution andvarieties, its cultural, political, and educational impact worldwide, its nature, origins, and prospects, and its pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, word-formation, and usage.This new edition notably focuses on World Englishes, English language teaching, English as an international language, and the effect of technological advances on the English language. More than 130 new entries include African American English, British Sign Language, China English, digital literacy,multimodality, social networking, superdiversity, and text messaging, among many others. It also includes new biographical entries on key individuals who have had an impact on the English language in recent decades, including Beryl (Sue) Atkins, Adam Kilgariff, and John Sinclair.It is an invaluable reference for English Language students, and fascinating reading for any general reader with an interest in language.… (mer)

We got this book for its linguistic content, but there was so much more literary information that we had in other sources and it took up so much room that we passed it on.

Un’ottima introduzione, in ordine alfabetico, alla lingua inglese. Qualche voce, sempre a caso dalla lettera “d”: Dictionary (sei pagine, dieci sottovoci, molti rimandi), Digest, Diglossia, Digraph, Diminutive, Diphthong, Direct and indirect speech, Direct Object, Dirge, Disambiguate… (questi ultimi tutte su due pagine su oltre mille). I rimandi in fondo a ogni articolo sono ottimi: Digest, un esempio tipico, rimanda a Abridgement, Facts on File, Magazine, Periodical, Reader’s Digest, Media e Writing. Parla di ogni aspetto della lingua, dal Dialect in America, Australia, Galles e altrove, sull’influenza su e di altre lingue, come il Danish, Dutch, o le Dravidian languages, persone (Dryden, Defoe), influenze (Danelaw), e tantissimo altro. È il compagno del Companion to English Literature, un altro buon libro.

INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION ON ENGLISH IN ALL ITS FORMS AND PLACES PRACTICED
A BOOK FOR ENGLISH LOVERS
  josephquinton | Aug 15, 2009 |
This is a fun book to browse! The entries are arranged alphabetically from "A" to "Zummerzet," with some of the words having just a sentence or two, and some having their own full essay. The introduction tells how the words were chosen. A World Map shows the areas where English is the main language, and in the back there is an index of every single person mentioned in the contents. It's fascinating! ( )
