Languages of the World: An Introduction
A new book by Asya Pereltsvaig, published by Cambridge University Press, answers these and other questions about the world’s languages. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, this book introduces readers to the rich diversity of human languages around the world. Eighteen language maps and numerous language family charts enable readers to place a language geographically or genealogically. A supporting website includes additional language maps and sound recordings that can be used to illustrate the peculiarities of the sound systems of various languages.
The book is released in the UK and the rest of Europe today, and the US release will follow shortly. It can be purchased at Amazon.com, directly from Cambridge University Press, or through major booksellers near you.
