The Mother Tongue – English and How It Got that Way by Bill Bryson

Have you ever wondered about English and why it is the way it is? Why we spell “colonel” but say “kərnl”? The Mother Tongue – English and How It Got that Way brilliantly explores the remarkable history, eccentricities, resilience and fun of the English language. A must-read for anyone curious to know the fascinating story of an inadequate, second-rate tongue of peasants from a small island off the coast of Europe that developed into one of the world’s largest growth industries.

P.S. I told you! Bill Bryson is a fantastic writer, offering us many gems about the English language.
