Review: The Languages of the World

Käyttäjän arvio  - Ben - Goodreads

This book was good as far as it went. It provides a fascinating overview of some of the world's languages and how they relate to one another, as well as samples to show how they look. For language geek like myself, it's a good to just sit and flip through! Lue koko arvostelu
