"Raymond and Russell have fashioned a lively, useful volume. . . . The ability and integrity of the contributors make much of the difference, but the editors have given the book direction by soliciting state of the art essays in three fields . . . dialectology (the articles represent area linguistics at its best), grammar and usage (Algeo on usage shibboleths is particularly fine), and lexicography (a delight)."


"These essays are quietly unassuming in tone but highly useful."

—Language in Society

"[S]ound, insightful, full of good sense, respectful of knowledge, and lucidly written."
