📙 The English Language: A Historical Introduction (Cambridge Approaches to Linguistics) by Charles Barber, Joan C. Beal, Philip A. Shaw — pdf free


This book is excellent for reference when studying and for personal education if you're interested in learning about the history of the English Language. Sounds boring, but did you know that Farsi is considered a Germanic language like French and Norwegian?? Also teaches the finer points of language, how words are pronounced and how different dialects develop. Broken down into easy-to-comprehend chapters, each deals with a certain part of the history of language and breaks it down into groups based on geography. From 1 being the easiest and 10 being the worst, reading level is about a 4 yet so much information compacted into a small book creates a dryness level of 8.
