Unlocking the English Language based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A mixture of all sorts of essays about the development of Modern English, including several about the history of dictionaries. Dr Burchfield was apparently in charge of the Supplement to the OED for fourteen years, so he knows what he's talking about.
