Product description

Review

If the history of language is a sort of labyrinth, David Crystal is an excellent guide (The Age, Australia 2011-10-29)

One of [Crystal's] best ... it builds gradually into a kind of linguistic tapestry, packed with abstruse information, wonderfully readable (Spectator)

Crystal's book is full of distractions and delights (Daily Express)

Book Description

An eye-opening tour of the English language through the ages from Britain's leading linguistics expert
