Historical Linguistics, the study of language change, is a major field in

challenges by providing accessible and widely representative definitions,
discussion, and examples of key terms and concepts used in the field. It
is written by two well-known authorities in this field. The book is
extremely valuable to anyone wishing to understand historical linguistic
terminology and concepts.

Key features:

*A handy, easily understandable pocket guide, and a valuable companion for
courses in Historical Linguistics, history of individual languages, history
of linguistics, and for anyone curious about how and why languages change.

*Numerous cross-references to related terms

*Covers new as well as traditional terminology

*Not only defines, but provides examples and relevant discussion
