A History of the English Language explores the linguistic and cultural development of English from the Roman conquest of England to the present day to provide a comprehensive overview of the different aspects of its history. This best-selling classic textbook has been revised and updated and encourages the reader to develop both an understanding of present-day English and an enlightened attitude toward the issues affecting the language today.

New features of the sixth edition include:

  • an additional chapter titled ‘English in the Twenty-first Century’, which examines the future of English and other global languages and includes an assessment of Chinese as a world language
  • an in-depth treatment of phonological changes, such as the placement of the Great Vowel Shift as a bridge between Middle English and Renaissance English
  • further coverage of corpus linguistics, especially for Renaissance English
  • fresh sections on accent and register
  • a new survey of the recent debate between "creolists" and "neo-Anglicists" on the origins of African American Vernacular English.

Balanced and wide-ranging, this textbook is a must-read for any student studying the history of the English language
