Exploring Language

A Tour Through the Languages of the World and the World of Language
Revised and updated edition.

A sound and comprehensive, user-friendly history of languages from their origins to this day.

How have our present day languages evolved? How are they related to each other? How many languages are there anyway? These and lots of other fascinating questions round about the various forms of human communication are covered by this reference book in a scientifically sound, but succinct and vivid fashion. Looking into the individual as well as the common features of languages, it offers a survey of their evolution, from the riveting decoding of hieroglyphs over the development and spreading of both language families and individual languages to modern inventions such as the artificial language Esperanto.
