4.0 out of 5 stars V. interesting for those with a basic interest in linguistic, 26 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The History of the English Language: A Sourcebook (Paperback)
If you have aleays been interested in how languages develop and change and how English came to be be the language it is now, then this book is a good introduction to the study of linguistics in relation to the English language. It has lots of information about how language came about, and how the European all came from a base language and the roots of words. Basically it is a very good introduction to the study of socio - linguistics for those with no previous ewxcperience of this relativly new area of science.
