The Germanic Languages provides a unique, up-to-date survey of twelve Germanic languages from English and German to Faroese and Yiddish. Spoken by more than 450 million native speakers worldwide, the Germanic languages have unrivalled cultural and social significance. This important work provides a chapter-length description of each language focusing on the structure of the languages as they are spoken today, but also giving an analysis of language history and development.
Based on the most recent scholarship, The Germanic Languages is fully comprehensive, presenting both detailed research on the major Germanic Languages and rarely covered minor languages such as Yiddish, Pennsylvanian German, Faroese, Afrikaans, and the German Creoles. Extensive discussions of phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis, and the main dialects plus a comprehensive index, bibliographies and maps of language distribution and development make this the complete reference for the study of Germanic Languages.
