Author Covey MacGregor presents an entertaining yet enlightening history of the English language that begins in 449, the year of its arrival in primitive obscurity in Britain, and ends with its achieving international preeminence and the opportunity to name a bunch of rocks on Mars. His history is a must-read if you want to know why Norse came close to being our Mother Tongue, why so many "English" words were in fact stolen from French (and many other languages as well)! The book includes 44 games with 1,032 questions about words and the English language. Age 9 to Adult.
