Title: The Oxford History of English
Edited By: Lynda Mugglestone
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199249312
Description:

The Oxford History of English traces the language from its obscure
Indo-European roots to its twenty-first century position as the world's
first language. It describes the history of English within the British
Isles, its changing roles in different places, and its rise to global
pre-eminence. Fifteen experts describe the history of English within a
chronological framework: they examine written varieties and the spoken
language of everyday life; and they consider and explain changes in words,
meanings, grammar, and pronunciation. The book will appeal to everyone with
a keen interest in the English language and its development.
