A History of English Words
Wiley, Feb 21, 2000 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 430 pages
This book traces the remarkable reconfigurations that English lexis has undergone in the past millennium. The vocabulary is studied as an indicator of social change, a symbol reflecting different social dynamics between speech communities, on models of dominance, cohabitation, colonialism and globalisation.
