This is a wonderful book for anyone who teaches or who is otherwise interested in our language and how it has developed over the centuries. Did you know that English has over 650,000 words? That is far more words than other languages. Also, crazy as our spelling seems, there are reasons for each and every spelling. Nothing is spelled by pure whim although at times it may seem so. This book is very readable and easily understood.
