Summary

Melvyn Bragg looks at how English has evolved over 1,000 years, looking at the disappearance of old dialects like that of Cumbria, and how it has been enriched by foreign languages, from Latin, Old French, and then dozens more as conquest, trade and immigration played their part in recent centuries.

Enjoyable historical account of spoken English

I am glad this is available on Audible as I remember listening to this on the radio. Now I can listen to it as much as I like. It informs and entertains with a wealth of English speaking voices in their many varieties and cadences.
