Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have lots of favourite English linguits, but David Crystal is perhaps my most favourite, because of the depth of his insights, his amazing knowledge of human language in general and the history of English in particular. Besides, he writes in a style which is highly enjoyable even for non-native speakers. Let me quote one of the reviewers: I also read it in one gulp.
