Future of Language, The: The Routledge David Crystal Lectures

Synopsis
Three of Professor David Crystal’s most popular lectures on the future of language, brought together on DVD, with an accompanying book. One of the world’s foremost experts on language and English language, and arguably the most accessible and entertaining writer and lecturer in this area, Crystal delivers these informative and highly enjoyable performance lectures exploring key contemporary language issues: ‘The Future of Englishes’, ‘Language Death’ and ‘Internet Linguistics’.

The accompanying book, included in the DVD package, contains Crystal’s commentary on the lectures. It supplements the lectures with a short overview of the main themes discussed, followed by a more detailed introduction to each topic and a synopsis of all the main points made in each lecture. The book concludes with Crystal’s reflections on how the three interrelated topics covered here will continue to interact and contribute to the evolution of language.
