Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198631367, Paperback)First published in 1992, The Oxford Companion to the English Language was described by The Times as an `excellent guide to the history, geography and contours of English', one that `immediately establishes itself as a necessary book'. A carefully-planned shorter version of the Oxford Companion to the English Language, this new Concise concentrates on the central themes in the language: grammar, usage, dialect, pronunciation, and the history of English. Within each theme all the key subjects are covered, and individual entries offer all the most essential information from the parent Companion.
With nearly 2,000 articles in A-Z format the Concise Companion is an ideal reference for both students and general readers wanting access to the highly readable scholarship of the Companion in a portable and affordable format.
