Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
History of English continues to be a great resource for students and teachers alike. This third edition provides even more ideas for discussion and further study, and the new chapter on letters and punctuation adds another valuable dimension. If any workbook can make this slightly daunting subject accessible, this one certainly can.
Kim Ballard, formerly Chief Examiner for A level English Language and Head of English at Esher College, UK.

This course book is a great introduction to the field and an invaluable resource for both students and teachers. Written in a clear and accessible style, it stimulates discussion and encourages students to carry out empirical research.
Anita Auer, University of Lausanne, Switzerland
