The Mother Tongue: English and How It Got That Way Pdf Book Description:

With dazzling wit and astonishing insight, Bill Bryson–the acclaimed writer of The Lost Continent–brilliantly explores the remarkable history, eccentricities, resilience and sheer fun of the English language. In the first descent of the larynx into the throat (why you can talk but your dog can not ), to the fine lost art of swearing.

Bryson tells the fascinating, often uproarious story of an insufficient, second-rate tongue of peasants that developed into one of the world’s biggest growth industries.
