9780155001688: The Origins and Development of the English Language

The fourth edition of The Origins and Development of the English Language continues to focus on the internal history of English -- its sounds, grammar, and vocabulary. In organization, the vocabulary is still treated most intensely in the final three chapter of the book. By studying the history of English, one can better understand the irregularities of modern English as well as finding more about ourselves.
