ISBN 978-9004186439. $1,716 (Hb) Reported by Liwei Jiao1 University of Pennsylvania Under the direct influence of international linguistics research trends, led notably by two major publishing houses, the Oxford University Press and Wiley-Blackwell, along with Routledge, Cambridge University Press, John Benjamins, De Gruyter and Spinger, Chinese linguistics has seen four major accomplishments in less than three years. Namely, this includes The Handbook of Chinese Linguistics (Blackwell, 2014, henceforth ‘Blackwell Handbook’), The Oxford Handbook of Chinese Linguistics (Oxford, 2015, henceforth ‘Oxford Handbook’), The Routledge Encyclopedia of the Chinese Language (Routledge, 2016, henceforth ‘Routledge Encyclopedia’) and The Encyclopedia of Chinese Language and Linguistics (Brill, 2016, henceforth ‘Brill Encyclopedia.’). The publication of these four books and in particular their contributors should be congratulated for providing such an unprecedentedly wide scope of up-to-date accounts of the Chinese language and linguistics. These books also include a variety of perspectives, such as generative, descriptive, experimental, historical, comparative, cognitive, evolutionary, functional, sociocultural and teaching, for readers from academics to general readers. Almost every entry comes with a comprehensible introduction to the topic and a detailed bibliography.
