Synopsis: STORY OF ENGLISH IN 100 WORDS, THE

This title offers an eye-opening tour of the English language through the ages from the Britain's leading linguistics expert. In this unique new history of the world's most ubiquitous language, linguistic expert, David Crystal, draws on words that best illustrate the huge variety of sources, influences and events that have helped to shape our vernacular since the first definitively English word was written down in the fifth century ('roe', in case you are wondering). Featuring Latinate and Celtic words, weasel words and nonce-words, ancient words ('loaf') to cutting edge ('twittersphere') and spanning the indispensable words that shape our tongue ('and', 'what') to the more fanciful ('fopdoodle'), Crystal takes us along the winding byways of language via the rude, the obscure and the downright surprising.
