New historical surveys of the crucial aspects of the language are presented, and historical changes that have affected English are treated as a continuing process, helping to explain the shape of the language today. In this book, a team of international experts cover the entire recorded history of the English language, outlining its development over fifteen centuries. The history and development of English, from the earliest known writings to its status today as a dominant world language, is a subject of major importance to linguists and historians. This complete and up-to-date history of English will be indispensable to all advanced students, scholars and teachers in this prominent field. With an emphasis on more recent periods, every key stage in the history of the language is covered, with full accounts of standardisation, names, the distribution of English in Britain and North America, and its global spread.

|Begat: The King James Bible and the English Language Daedalus Books Crystal D. |
Let there be light - Whited sepulchres - A rod of iron - New wine into old bottles Lick the dust - How are the mighty fallen - A thorn in the flesh - Wheels within wheels They' re all in the King James Bible. This astonishing book has ' contributed far more to English in the way of idiomatic or quasi-proverbial expressions than any other literary source' , wrote David Crystal in 2004. In Begat he returns to the subject: he asks how a work published in 1611 could have had such an influence on the language and looks closely at what that influence has been. He comes to some surprising conclusions. No other version of the Bible however popular (such as the Good News Bible) or imposed upon the church (like the New English Bible) has had anything like the same impact. David Crystal shows how its words and phrases got independent life in the work of poets, playwrights, novelists, and politicians, and how more recently they have been taken up by journalists, advertisers, Hollywood, and hip-hop. He reveals the great debt the King James Bible owes to its English forebears, especially John Wycliffe' s in the fourteenth century and William Tyndale' s in the sixteenth. He also shows that the revisions and changes made by King James' s translators were crucial to its universal success.
