How English Became English: A Short History of a Global Language

Simon Horobin (Author)

The English Language is spoken by more than a billion people throughout the world. But where did English come from? And how has it evolved into the language used today?

In Do You Speak English? Simon Horobin investigates the evolution of the English language, examining how the language continues to adapt even today, as English continues to find new speakers and new uses. Engaging with contemporary concerns about correctness, Horobin considers whether such changes are improvements, or evidence of slipping standards. What is the future for the English Language? Will Standard English continue to hold sway, or are we witnessing its replacement by newly emerging Englishes?

Contents: 1. What is English? 2. Origins. 3. Authority. 4. Standards. 5. Varieties. 6. Global English. 7. Why do we care?.
