Product Description

Review

'This second edition … retains the outstanding features of the first edition – it covers all the topics relevant to a study of the history of English. In addition, the second edition brings with it a new rigour and a fuller and more careful and detailed account of, in particular, spelling and speech sounds, grammar, dialects and standardisation. I congratulate the author on the improvements made in this second edition.'Sue Powell, University of Salford, UK

An extremely poor Kindle conversion. It's hard to believe that the publishers have the cheek to charge for rubbish like this. The formattig is all messed up, many of th especial characters are not reproduced correctly, and the exercises are given in images with unreadable text.

The content of the printed version is excellent, but the Kindle version is unreadable.

By Kyriakos Sorokkou on 2 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful during my university days. Now 6 years later, I keep refereeing to it when I want to point out something to students relatives or myself. It's simply the history of English language its grammar the simplification if case inflections, explains why spelling is so chaotic nowadays, explores the world Englishes and more. Highly recommended.

Buy the print book instead 5 Sept. 2011
By Andrew M. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the poorest Kindle conversions I have ever seen. Almost none of the original book's formatting has been preserved, and some text has been rendered as barely-legible pictures. You're better off getting the print version and scanning it in yourself.

A negative review 15 Mar. 2000
By Otomar Hajek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Suppose you want to find out about the Great Vowel Shift, a rather significant event in the history of English. You find two references in the index (frustratingly, under 'Speech Sounds'). On looking at these, you discover (a) they refer to each other, and (b) consist of misunderstood, and non-representative, examples.
