The history and development of English, from the earliest known writings to its status today as a dominant world language, is a subject of major importance to linguists and historians. 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. New historical surveys of the crucial aspects of the language are presented, and historical changes that have affected English are treated as a continuing process, helping to explain the shape of the language today. This complete and up-to-date history of English will be indispensable to all advanced students, scholars and teachers in this prominent field.

The third edition of A BIOGRAPHY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE continues to examine the structure of language. The textbook discusses three important issues: languages and language change are systematic; the inner history of a language is profoundly affected by its outer history of political and cultural events; and the English of the past has everywhere left its traces on present-day English. By uncovering the language's past, one can better communicate with it.

As an educator with many years of experience in directing English as a Second Language (ESL) and cross-cultural programs, Kathleen Gripman spotted a troubling gap in the educational preparation of many students. Learning the essentials of American history is a critical educational milestone, but most overviews of America’s story are designed for reading levels beyond the ability of most English Language Learners. Gripman decided to fill that gap with the richly illustrated and fun-to-read book American History Made Easy. The book begins with the meeting of European and native cultures in what is now the U.S. after the voyage of Christopher Columbus in 1492. The story continues through the American Revolution, the expansion of the nation in the 1800s, the Civil War and key events in America’s most recent century of challenges and triumphs. To make students’ studying easier, the book also includes lots of supplemental materials, among them: study questions, the text of the U.S. Constitution, a list of American authors and recommended reading, a glossary and an index. Gripman had the perfect qualifications to meet this challenge as a successful business owner supervising ESL educators in southeast Michigan—and as a developer of some of the literacy-training materials used in her programs. Gripman also had lived overseas, including five years of service in Europe with the U.S. Navy. She designed her overview of American history for the millions of English Language Learners (ELL), including English as a Second Language students, who are studying each year across the United States. The book can be used either in a classroom or for self-study. Between these covers, Gripman narrates the essential chapters of American history, written at an intermediate reading level and accompanied by original black-and-white sketches and charts to deepen reader recall. In selecting the chapters to include, she drew on the questions frequently asked on exams and certification tests that immigrants commonly encounter, making the book a practical way to prepare for testing. Most importantly, Gripman decided not to distill America’s story into a series of dry facts to be memorized. Writing in an engaging narrative style, her book also is ideal for any reader who wants an overview of the essentials of American history.
