English Vocabulary Today: Into the 21st Century offers an innovative perspective on the ways in which contemporary English language vocabulary continues to adapt and grow in light of emerging technologies and ideas. The book begins with a concise history of the English language, ...followed by chapters covering key topics including lexical change, semantic change, and word-formation. Additional chapters highlight unique topics not often covered in English language studies, including the mental lexicon, inclusive language, and the importing and exporting of words between English and other languages. Chapter discussions are enhanced by dynamic examples from a wide range of varieties of English, including American, British, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, South African, and South Asian. Taken together, English Vocabulary Today: Into the 21st Century offers students with a clear and comprehensive understanding of the multi-faceted nature of English vocabulary today and new insights into its continued development.
