      • The Celtic Languages.
      • Martin J. Ball
      • Paperback, 696 pages, 47 figures and 119 tables, 234 x 156 mm
      • New in paperback, The Celtic Languages describes in depth all the Celtic languages from historical, structural and sociolinguistic perspectives, with individual chapters on Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Manx, Welsh, Breton and Cornish. This comprehensive volume is arranged in four parts for ease of reference, reflecting the most important features of the language family and aiding cross-linguistic comparison. The first part covers the origin and history of the Celtic languages, including their spread and retreat, present-day distribution and a survey of the extant and recently extant languages. Parts II and III devote whole chapters to describing the structural details of each of the languages, including phonology, morphology, syntax, dialectology and lexis. The final part provides wide-ranging sociolinguistic detail, such as identifying areas of usage, maintenance and each language's prospects for survival. This is an invaluable reference tool for both students and teachers of linguistics, especially those with an interest in typology, language universals and the unique sociolinguistic position which the Celtic languages occupy.

      • Runes and Runic Inscriptions. Collected Essays on Anglo-Saxon and Viking Runes.
      • R.I.Page
      • Paperback, 364 pages, 1, black & white illustrations, 234 x 156 mm. How, where and why runes were used is still often mysterious; they continue to set puzzles for those who study them, among whom few are better known than the author of this book. Here he investigates evidence from Anglo-Saxon runic coins to Manx inscribed stones, including many of the known Anglo-Saxon runic inscriptions (notably the Ruthwell cross and the Franks casket) and manuscripts, and looks in passing at some Scandinavian material, both in Great Britain and elsewhere. In addition to these detailed descriptions of inscriptions, and of the runic futhorc, or alphabet, on which they are based, Page also considers wider issues on which runes throw light: magic, paganism and literacy.
