About the Authors
  • What's the word that describes the process of making supportive noises when you're listening to someone? What is syntax and how does it differ from grammar? Do you know what a morpheme is? And did you know that it's not only an atom that has a nucleus? The Babel Lexicon of Language is an entertaining and accessible introduction to the key terminology involved in the study of language. It defines over 500 terms and uses contemporary language examples, explaining complex issues in an easy-to-understand way. Written by the expert editorial team behind Babel, the popular language magazine, and assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, The Babel Lexicon of Language is an invaluable resource for students, teachers and anyone with an interest in language.

    • Provides a comprehensive introduction to all areas of linguistics
    • Contains over 500 entries on key topics in linguistics and language study
    • Assumes no prior knowledge of linguistics, making it accessible to lay-readers, non-specialists, teachers and students
