In this book, a team of international experts cover the entire recorded history of the English language, outlining its development over fifteen centuries. With an emphasis on more recent periods, every key stage in the history of the language is covered, with full accounts of standardisation, names, the distribution of English in Britain and North America, and its global spread.

This complete and up-to-date history of English will be indispensable to all advanced students, scholars and teachers in this prominent field.
