Very handy for beginning linguistics students!

Excellent for beginning linguistics students, language learners and language teachers. In encyclopedic form, this is one of the best books I've found that gives concise but thorough explanations of basic words such as adverb, clause, conjunction, passive, subject, pluperfect, reflexive, etc. Each of the 100 entries includes plenty of examples, comparisons, notes and short exercises to test that the explanation is understood. Descriptions of terms are thorough and come from several different angles. Plenty of examples are given which is great for people who learn best from context. Many linguistics textbooks cannot be used to look up terms quickly the way that this can be used. It does not assume that the reader will have already read the other entries, but includes terms to cross reference for those interested. Most examples are in English, but several other languages are also used. Very highly recommended!
