I'm pretty sure this is not the edition I read, but I would be at a loss to say exactly which edition I DID read.

This is a very hard book to get through. Jespersen doesn't spare his readers, and it would be a mistake to approach the work without a very thorough grounding in the history and structure of the English language.

With that background, the book still isn't easy reading. But it's the most thorough grounding in English grammatical and phonetic principles available, and repays the effort.
