Abstract:

Speak: A Short History of Languages is a history of human speech from
prehistory to the present. It charts the rise of some languages and
the fall of others, explaining why some survive and others die. It
shows how languages change their meaning, shape, and sounds, and how
the history of languages is intimately linked to the history of
peoples. Written in a lively, readable style, it makes no assumptions
about previous knowledge.

Lingfield(s): Historical Linguistics

Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
