Dan McIntyre

This revised second edition of History of English includes:

❑ a comprehensive introduction to the history of English covering the origins of English, the change from Old to Middle English, and the influence of other languages on English;

❑ increased coverage of key issues, such as the standardisation of English;

❑ a wider range of activities, plus answers to exercises;

❑ new readings of well-known authors such as Manfred Krug, Colette Moore, Merja Stenroos and David Crystal;

❑ a timeline of important external events in the history of English.

Structured to reflect the chronological development of the English language, History of English describes and explains the changes in the language over a span of 1,500 years, covering all aspects from phonology and grammar, to register and discourse. In doing so, it incorporates examples from a wide variety of texts and provides an interactive and structured textbook that will be essential reading for all students of English language and linguistics.
