The Concise Companion to the English Language is a language lover's dream. Tom
McArthur unveils a thousand-page cornucopia covering virtually every aspect of
the English language as well as language in general. He covers a variety of
topics, from Abbreviations to split infinitives, and includes substantial
entries on key subjects such as African English, etymology, Pidgin, poetry,
sexism, and slang. In addition, the Companion provides bibliographies for the
larger entries, generous cross-referencing, etymologies for headwords, a
chronology of English from Roman times to 1990, and an index of peopple who
appear in entries or bibliographies. Packed with delightful surprises, the
Companion will be an invaluable resource and a fascinating read for anyone with
an interest in the English Language.
