The Routledge Handbook of the English Writing System provides a comprehensive account of the English writing system, both in its current iteration and highlighting the developing trends that will influence its future. Twenty-nine chapters written by specialists from around the world cover core linguistic and psychological aspects, and also include areas from other disciplines such as typography and computer-mediated communication. Divided into five parts, the volume encompasses a wide range of approaches and addresses issues in the following areas: theory and the English writing system, discussing the effects of etymology and phonology; the history of the English writing system from its earliest development, including spelling, pronunciation and typography; the acquisition and teaching of writing, with discussions of literacy issues and dyslexia; English writing in use around the world, both in the UK and America, and also across Europe and Japan; computer-mediated communication and developments in writing online and on social media. The Routledge Handbook of the English Writing System is essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students working in this area.

"There is a story behind each letter of the alphabet. Why is the X the Unknown or shorthand for a Kiss? Which letter came last, historically, in the alphabet? (J) How did a few squggles, invented a thousand years ago to denote sounds of a now vanished Semetic language, survive to become our letters today? While China and Japan rely mainly on scripts of ideograms, three-quarters of humanity uses some kind of alphabet. Chinese writing requires 2000 basic symbols (but there's no language barrier), where an alphabet needs typically less than 30. From A-Z, David Sacks provides answers to the most fascinating questions about the way we talk, write and think in a book which will also be illustrated graphically throughout - not just with variations of individual letters but with maps, charts and general narrative images."

The literature of croquet has long been of interest to scholars and collectors. This work attempts to document all the books and pamphlets devoted to the game from its early beginnings to the end of 1997. It is intended that a future volume will catalogue the periodical literature, other books and pamphlets, both of fiction and non-fiction, which refer to the game, and contributions to other media. The present volume is divided into four parts. Part A records books and pamphlets about croquet whose existence has been verified or can safely be assumed, Part B records patents of inventions relating to the game, Part C lists other books and pamphlets not seen by the compiler whose existence is supported by good evidence, and Part D lists other patents related to the game not seen by the compiler. The subject works recorded in Part A receive full bibliographical descriptions together with historical and analytic notes. Those with exotic title pages are illustrated. There are over one thousand entries, comprising 403 titles of specialist books and pamphlets, 493 subsequent editions and variants, and 158 patents. Most of the subject documents are in English, but the French, German, Italian, Swedish, Afrikaans, Chinese and Japanese languages are also represented.
