"The relatively young field of vocabulary studies has recently developed and widened to such an extent that a volume covering all its subdomains was badly needed. This volume brings us up to date with 35 contributions, written by among the best experts in the world, competently edited by Stuart Webb, one of the most prominent researchers in this field. There is simply no good reason not to consult this volume."
