內容簡介

Follow the extraordinary journey of the most widely spoken language in the world, discover its many influences and learn about how it has evolved. From the Anglo-Saxons in the fifth century to the Normans in the eleventh, and on to present-day America, many diverse elements and languages have shaped modern-day English.

Divided chronologically, this fascinating guide follows the language from Latin - and earlier - influences, through Old and Middle English to Early Modern and, finally, today's Late Modern English.

The Story of English also explores, among much else, the history of the printing press, the works of Chaucer, the evolution of the dictionary, the use of slang in speech and the coming of electronic messaging. Wide-ranging and scrupulously researched, this is both a celebration of and a tribute to the most expressive, and yet adaptable, language in history.
