A Biography of the English Language

1. Introduction. 2. Phonology. 3. Writing. 4. Language Families and Indo-European Languages. 5. Old English (AD 450 - 1100). 6. Middle English (1100 - 1500). 7. Early Modern English (1500 - 1800). 8. Present-Day English (1800 - ). 9. English Around the World.
The third edition of A BIOGRAPHY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE continues to examine the structure of language. The textbook discusses three important issues: languages and language change are systematic; the inner history of a language is profoundly affected by its outer history of political and culural events; and the English of the past has everywhere left its traces on present-day English. By uncovering the language's past, one can better communicate with it.
