We are honoured to have Professor David Crystal as our language consultant. He is one of the world’s foremost linguists on the English language, and currently works as a writer, editor and lecturer.
He had published the first of his 100 or so books. By 1964 he became known chiefly for his research work in English language studies. His authored works are mainly in the field of language, but he is perhaps best known for his two encyclopedias for Cambridge University Press, The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language and The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language (3rd edn 2018). In 2015, he co-authored Oxford Illustrated Shakespeare Dictionary with his son, Ben Crystal. He was also the founder-editor of The Journal of Child Language and Child Language Teaching and Therapy.
He is currently patron of the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL) and the Association for Language Learning (ALL), president of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and the UK National Literacy Association, and an honorary vice-president of the Institute of Linguists and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
