Description:

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.
