Dictionary of Language and Linguistics.
Hartmann, R. R. K.; Stork, F. C.
With linguistic studies, both theoretical and applied, gaining widespread recognition, new and confusing terms are often introduced. This dictionary, therefore, explains the many new terms and relates the new approaches and concepts to the already familiar traditional grammatical terminology. The most important criterion for selecting entries was a general consensus of opinion among linguists. It brings together representative samples of terminology from the various branches of linguistics, excludes general nontechnical terms, and extends the "common core" of terminology to selected terms from specialized but important theories. Entries are arranged alphabetically and typically contain (1) a general definition, (2) a further specification to classify or subdivide the general definition, (3) cross references, (4) examples from other languages to illustrate the definition, and (5) bibliographical references. The dictionary also includes listings of abbreviations, symbols and conventions, important consonants, the International Phonetic Alphabet, some nonalphabetic scripts, and alphabetic scripts, as well as two appendixes which include a list of languages and a bibliography.
