Profile Books Ltd | 2011 | ISBN: 1846684277 | English | 320 pages | EPUB | 2.70 MB
The world's foremost expert on the English language takes us on an entertaining and eye-opening tour of the history of our vernacular through the ages.
In The Story of English in 100 Words, an entertaining history of the worldâ€™s most ubiquitous language, David Crystal draws on one hundred words that best illustrate the huge variety of sources, influences and events that have helped to shape our vernacular since the first definitively English wordâ€”â€˜roeâ€™â€”was written down on the femur of a roe deer in the fifth century. Featuring ancient words (â€˜loafâ€™), cutting edge terms that relfect our world (â€˜twittersphereâ€™), indispensible words that shape our tongue (â€˜andâ€™, â€˜whatâ€™), fanciful words (â€˜fopdoodleâ€™) and even obscene expressions (the "c word"...), David Crystal takes readers on a tour of the winding byways of our language via the rude, the obscure and the downright surprising.
