SUMMARY

In a detailed account of the language families of each region of the world, this comprehensive work identifies and explains interesting and sometimes unique features of vocabulary and grammar. The evolution of more than 200 languages and their deep-seated similarities as well as surprising differences are revealed in clear, precise language. The writing systems of the world are also examined in some detail, and the issue of disappearing languages is addressed. Languages that are threatened with extinction, as local languages vanish along with traditional ways of life, are identified, and efforts to preserve and revive them are reviewed within this framework.Comrie, Bernard is the author of 'Atlas of Languages The Origin and Development of Languages Throughout the World' with ISBN 9780816051236 and ISBN 0816051232.
