Take a linguistic tour of Britain with Wordsmiths and Warriors! Intended as a travel guide but interesting enough to enjoy from the comfort of your couch, this unique book follows two language-lovers on a pilgrimage to trace the evolution of the English language - from Pegwell Bay (the landing site of the Anglo-Saxons) to the study of phonetics and English usage at the University College of London… and dozens of other fascinating locations. Each chapter features a significant landmark, including photographs and travel directions. Delve into this fascinating history and discover how scholars and soldiers alike shifted the tides of the language and culture of Britain - and influenced the world! (SM)
