9780155016477: Workbook to Accompany a Biography of the English Language

The third edition of A Biography Of The English Language continues to examine the structure of language. The textbook discusses three important issues: languages and language change are systematic; the inner history of a language is profoundly affected by its outer history of political and cultural events; and the English of the past has everywhere left its traces on present-day English. By uncovering the language's past, one can better communicate with it.

Review:

"The book is very well written with a very appealing "voice" and is very clear in its explanations. It focuses appropriately on the most significant changes in the history of English."
