The Languages of the World has long been the essential handbook for al language students and linguists. It has now been revised and updated to reflect the latest changes in the world map and in the number of speakers of each language.

This concise reference source provides the reader with a wealth of information on the world's languages. Samples of native scripts are provided for many unfamiliar and exotic languages.

The book features:

  • a chart of the world's language families which shows clearly the relationship between different languages and subfamilies.
  • sample texts and translations for nearly 200 languages.
  • a country-by-country survey, listing every country in the world, with information about its principal languages, the number of speakers of each, and the part of the country in which it is spoken.
