Synopsis
A classic historical excursion through the English language. Owen Barfield's original and thought-provoking works over three-quarters of a century made him a legendary cult figure. This popular book provides a brief, brilliant history of those who have spoken the Indo-European tongues. It is illustrated throughout by current English words - whose derivation from other languages, whose history in use and changes of meaning - record and unlock the larger history.
