Summary

Appropriate for courses in history of the English language, this text presents language as a system of continuing transformation. The text links the history of language with the development of English literature and presents a comprehensive survey of English around the world. The clarity of exposition and lucid presentation of linguistic detail have been highly praised. Explanations of linguistic terms do not assume any prior knowledge of the subject. Nine new maps are included to visually enhance the discussion of English around the world. Parallel tests for Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English and Present Day English allow students to compare the same texts at different stages of English.
