The Story of English

Author(s): Robert McCrum

History

"The Story of English" is the extraordinary tale of the origins and development of the English language. Two thousand years ago English was confined to a handful of savage tribes on the shores of north-west Europe; today, in one form or another, it is spoken by a billion people around the world. More widely scattered, written and spoken than any other language in history, English has become a global phenomenon. Exploring its amazing success, "The Story of English" is an essential companion for student and general reader alike.
