Mainly about invented languages, but I found interesting the information surrounding the different motives of the inventors. There is also a description of people who tried to analyze their own existing language, for example, how one of the first attempt at a synonym reference book ordered words by classification (it reminded me of the Scientific Classification of animals we have today).
