Reviews

'This handbook is an excellent assemblage of facts and ideas about the fast declining world's linguistic diversity. It is uniquely resourceful and comprehensive.' Herman M. Batibo, Former President, World Congress of African Linguistics
'This splendid handbook is an authoritative resource for those seeking to respond responsibly to ongoing loss of the world's languages.' Nancy H. Hornberger, University of Pennsylvania
'The Cambridge Handbook of Endangered Languages is without a doubt a welcome contribution to the field of linguistics and language preservation. One of the key aspects of preserving minority languages is public engagement, so the production of easy to read and highly accessible texts such as this is an important step in the process. It is authoritative and comprehensive, providing both facts and current academic theory to great and provocative effect.' Zoe Bartliff, LinguistList (www.linguistlist.org)
