A Fascinating Treasure Trove for Etymologists
At my small business college, when I showed selected lectures to my first-term English students, they were entranced. Many of them had no knowledge of the origins of English and were amazed at the wealth and length of history behind modern English. The explanations of specific words' evolutions from their ancient origins into modern forms particularly interested them. The lecturers are brilliant, and their vocabulary will challenge and add to any class's command of language. I highly recommend this set to teachers of English from high school to college level.
