Be the first to review this product

Availability: In stock


Studying the etymology of English words and the structure of the language itself is akin to delving into an epic tale, complete with battles and conquests, knights and kings, invented vocabulary and great orators to inspire the masses. It draws from a rich and vast array of peoples and idioms, including Latin from the Roman Empire, Germanic from the Anglo-Saxon tribes, French aristocracy, Spanish, and even some Turkish amongst others, spanning over hundreds of years. Language by nature is dynamic and constantly developing, and English has had a particularly exciting journey, developing into a “mingle-mangle” of slangs, swears, contractions, and cultural expressions from all around the world. Even more exciting is that English is still growing and adapting the same as a living organism, free to fit the needs of the modern era. Therefore, as English hurtles into the future, please join us as we reflect on the lively and fascinating History of the English Language.
