This book made me understand historical linguistics in a way I never did before.

I had heard of many of these terms in a general way but had no clue what they really meant.

Things like "Grimm's Law" and "The Great Vowel Shift".

Buddhism Plain and Simple by Steve Hagen
Rate this book

I heard of this book in Jeff Wilson's interesting book "Mindful America". In that book Wilson kind of implies that Hagen "waters down" Buddhism to make it more palatable to an American audience.

Talk to Win by Lillian Glass
Rate this book
Clear rating
Now that I think about it, maybe one of parents was trying to improve their speech.

Funny how I didn't think about that until now.

For me as a kid, I found the idea of people doing vocal exercises in order to "sound more attractive" to be fascinating.

Othello by William Shakespeare

Rate this book
Clear rating
