Book Description

This is the definitive survey of the English language—in all its forms. Crystal writes accessibly about the structure of the language, the uses of English throughout the world, and finally he gives a brief history of English. The book has been fully revised and there is a fascinating new chapter on "The effect of technology" on the English language.
