The Adventure of Language The Adventure of Language, by Michael Girdansky
#A0354

...Revised and Edited by Mario Pei. From the back cover: In English we might say, "I go," "He went," or "She will be going," indicating in the three statements who is doing what and when, and, if we add, "We may be going," indicating probability as well. The Wintu Indian adds a concern for reliabiility; he has a verb form indicating whether the speaker was a direct eyewitness of an action, and another to indicate that he learned of it through hearsay (and he will use the hearsay form if the speaker was either drunk or delirious at the time).

Of interest to both the philologist and the general reader, this classic study describes the distinctive features of the English language and explains the growth and significance of the major components of modern English. Throughout, linguistic history is linked to the history of England to demonstrate the inner growth of English from its Germanic beginnings. Particular attention is devoted to foreign sources including Latin, Greek, French, Dutch, Arabic, Spanish, and the Scandinavian languages.
