The journey of the English language in time

July 4, 2011 § 3 Comments

How did the English language evolve in time? Ten witty animated videos released by the Open University tell us ‘The History of English in 10 Minutes’, bringing us through 1600 years of linguistic history. From the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings to the English of the Internet, the journey of the language goes on.

Watch the rest of the videos: Anglo-Saxon, The Norman Conquest, Shakespeare, The King James Bible, The English of Science, English and Empire, The Age of the Dictionary, American English, Global English.
