Originally published in 1993, the second edition of this highly successful atlas has been fully updated to provide a truly comprehensive, one-of-a-kind resource.
With an emphasis on the contemporary world linguistic situation, Atlas of World Languages:
* presents new information on immigrant language use
* includes a new chapter on contemporary linguistic practices such as global business, diplomatic and internet language use
* provides a substantial overhaul of the maps featured in the first edition.
Building on the huge success of its predecessor, this new edition is undoubtedly an important and unique work in its field.
