Provides a unique, up-to-date survey of twelve Germanic languages from English and German to Faroese and Yiddish.
'The Germanic Languages is a comprehensive survey of Germanic languages characterized by conciseness and lucidity. The way the languages are treated in this edition as well as its editorial organization make it a recommendable reference book for students of the Germanic philology as well as a useful source of information for linguistics dealing either with comparative or historical linguistics.' - International Review of Applied Linguistics
'Both the authors and the editors have done a excellent job. It provides a valuable basis for further comparative studies across the distinctly and yet differently related Germanic group of languages.' - Studies in Language
'An index, maps and tables/figures advance the seminal nature of The Germanic Languages for the study and research of general, Germanic, and Indo-European linguistics.' - Irmengard Rauch, Besprechungen
