Home Forums Cool Podcasts The History of English Re: Re: The History of English



I really enjoy this podcast. There was an old BBC series that went into the history of the language but I'm totally getting into Kevin's work. It's obvious that he's very enthusiastic about history and English. I like his approach to English and the root languages as 'spoken artifacts'. A great way to look at the language. Coming from the north of England I'm pretty aware of the impact on accents that the Norse and Germanic tribes had on the language but I wasn't as aware of the Indo-European stuff. Gripping!
