**NOT FOR SALE IN THE USA, CANADA OR THE PHILIPPINES** A History of the English Language explores the linguistic and cultural development of English from the Roman conquest of England to the present day to provide a comprehensive overview of the different aspects of its history. This best-selling classic textbook has been revised and updated and encourages the reader to develop both an understanding of present-day English and an enlightened attitude toward the issues affecting the language today. New features of the sixth edition include: * an additional chapter titled English in the Twenty-first Century, which examines the future of English and other global languages and includes an assessment of Chinese as a world language * an in-depth treatment of phonological changes, such as the placement of the Great Vowel Shift as a bridge between Middle English and Renaissance English * further coverage of corpus linguistics, especially for Renaissance English * fresh sections on accent and register * a new survey of the recent debate between creolists and neo-Anglicists on the origins of African American Vernacular English.
